Highs & Lows

  • For a perfect lunch order the grilled shrimp linguini and a cold glass of local rose.

  • The rocky beach and swimming lagoon are the perfect place for a late afternoon swim – for an extra thrill jump in from cliffside.

  • Service done right: no one is ever lurking, but the moment you need something, someone magically appears and has just what you’re looking for.

  • Part of the appeal here is the isolation, but if you’re looking to do some exploring off campus, your options are somewhat limited.

  • Surprisingly, the spa facilities are quite small - but massages are available.
