Our favourite rooms
Each room is a carefully curated with a mini-museum’s worth of sculptures, folk art and photography, so whether you settle on a Casa Grande suite or a free-standing cottage, there’s no lack of eye-candy. Casa Grande’s shared balcony has sweeping, bird’s-eye views of the jungle canopy and bay, and the secluded Sun House offers the most privacy and largest terrace, too.
Spy the tranquil bay from one of the kick-line of primary-coloured sunloungers trimming the outdoor, unheated infinity pool.
Leave the bug spray behind. Each room is conveniently stocked with Sawyer insect repellent, and the resort sprays for mosquitos every evening.
The soothing spa only has one treatment room, but you can request to have a restorative massage or aromatherapy facial in your room.
Children are welcome. However, because of the remote location and natural surroundings (no paved paths for prams) it’s best suited for older, adventure-seeking kids.
