‘Workation:’ it's like a "holiday" where you "do stuff" for "business."
Jeremy and I and 4 of our closest friends, who also work for us.
One of these could be yours. You don’t even need to be picky because they are all super PRIVATE!
Over-water hammocks are not overrated. In fact, this one is comfy and cool!
It’s really tough to not be relaxed with a view like this!
If the views through the double doors out to the ocean bore you, you can always look right through the floor!
Grab your partner and jump on in. This is the definition of fun!
It’s so fun criss-crossing the island, even the staff choose to scoot around on bikes!
Scooting round the island!
King sized comfort, with five choices in pillow support.
The details of the villa are very well thought through. There’s nothing better than big beds, clean lines and wood panelling in paradise.
Soaking in a tub has never been so peaceful!
Looking back onto the Royal Villa from the glorious Indian Ocean.
Highs + Lows
The non-disruptive serenity is the best I’ve ever experienced. They have really nailed ‘build a paradise and then leave the guests the hell alone to enjoy it’.
Take advantage of your butler and stay in your villa all day! With 24 hour service and an in-room bar/wine cellar what could go wrong?!?
The whole island is WiFi enabled. It’s crazy! You’re in the middle of the ocean and can totally brag about it on Facey. Downside - your friends will hate you.
Zero Degrees’ swim up pool bar could be bigger. It’s not enough of an attraction compared to sipping a sling on the poolside daybeds.
The music at Zero Degrees had us thinking we were in a club, not an island poolside restaurant. We had to ask for it to be turned down most days. It was disturbing our serenity, after all.
When the tide is very low you can’t safely jump off the infinity pool – but ssshhhh because it’s technically not allowed during high tide either…
