Our favourite rooms
With artwork and furnishings that cycle through a spectrum of styles, each room is as individual as the next, so selecting a favourite is a matter of taste. The important thing is to make sure you’ve got one that makes the most of the dune-framed ocean view.
There are four large infinity pools set into the dunes in front of the hotel, all with uninterrupted views of the ocean. Each is lined with dark stone, giving them a mirror-like quality at sunrise and sunset. Sunloungers with parasols are arranged on raised decks overhanging the water, and there are tables for alfresco dining nearby on the lawns.
With a gallery’s worth of local artwork and a beachfront location, this is the place to break out your most bohemian attire.
The common areas are all wheelchair accessible, but there are no specially adapted rooms.
All ages are welcome at the hotel. Babysitting is available for $40 an hour; a day’s notice is required when booking.
The hotel has an eco-friendly outlook, making use of solar power and a water recycling system. The majority of the restaurant's ingredients are locally-sourced, too.
