Highs & Lows

  • The location is unbeatable. And the colour of that water, need I say more?

  • Despite being hard to get to and remote, the food is exceptional, especially the seafood which is caught and cooked daily.

  • The service is second to none - you say jump, they will ask how high (note: we did not ask anyone to actually jump, however, we did always ask for more cocktails).

  • The beach villas are the ideal place to relax and totally switch off. They are fitted with a daybed on the porch, comfortable armchairs and a bed as soft as a marshmallow.

  • It is hard to get to. This is part of its charm of course but is another big expense on top of the room rates.
