Highs & Lows

  • Every day we woke up and went ‘wow!’, it’s the most incredibly beautiful place and the pitons are awe-inspiring. We honestly couldn’t believe we were there!

  • Every single member of the team was brilliant, super friendly and lovely and nothing, and I mean nothing, was too much trouble. There’s a mobile phone in each room that you take around with you and call your butler anytime for anything! (iPads in each room with information on the whole hotel and daily news too)

  • Enjoy fresh coconuts and cacao pods on the beach, even get your sunglasses cleaned!

  • Your villa could be quite far from the beach and up a hill, good exercise if you fancy the walk but it’s quick and easy to get picked up and taken wherever you want to go. As much as we loved the brightly-coloured tuk tuks, I think electric-powered modes of transport for the hotel would be more environmentally friendly
