Highs & Lows

  • Location! A sweet garden oasis on the hilltop! Walk through the side door to enter winding pathways leading to all the island action. No need to drink & drive….and taxis are scarce.

  • The intimate pool area & sun beds transform into a stunning, beautifully lit, multi-level cocktail lounge, bar & restaurant scene at dusk. A fun hot spot.

  • The FOOD! Delicious offerings at all times from both restaurants.

  • Helpful service. They have a well curated app to help you discover which of the many beaches or restaurants are best for you. They also offer beach towels & rides if taxis aren’t available.

  • All rooms have balconies, but not all rooms have vista views…

  • The elegant and minimalist design in the rooms could use a little more character for my taste.
