Our favourite rooms
Bagsy the top bunk of one of the private Bungalows. These spacious 630-square-foot suites offer extra privacy and lots of living space for families and friends travelling together. Like all rooms at the hotel, they’re decorated by New York interior designers, Roman and Williams; they have a laid-back beach feel with simple furnishings in cream, blue and red, plus works by local artists.
Surrounded by tall palm trees, colourful cushioned sunloungers and vivid yellow parasols, the pool is a hive of social activity. By day, it’s filled with eye-catching inflatables and lined with millennials on Macs; by night, it plays host to regular pop-ups, pool parties and happy hours.
Make sure you’ve got international roaming on your phone – you’ll have plenty to tweet, vlog and insta about.
Although none of the bedrooms are specially designed for wheelchair-users, the hotel has lifts and ramps, so all rooms, the restaurant and bar are easily accessible.
Children of all ages are welcome, but as the hotel has a lively bar/party scene, it’s best suited to older teenagers.
