Our favourite rooms
Suites are named after flowers and include courtyard gardens, steam rooms and alfresco showers. Hibiscus is our favourite bloom – a bold bungalow with Cambodian and Indian touches. Go for a Colonial Pool Jacuzzi Suite or the Residence for an outdoor, private Jacuzzi. The spacious ground-floor Bungalow Suites work well with extra beds, or the family-friendly Red Poppy Suite includes two king-size beds, a Jacuzzi, a bathroom with steam bath, and an indoor and outdoor shower.
Chill out in the spacious saltwater pool surrounded by verdant foliage. It's the only pool in town cooled to a refreshing temperature on a hot day, so lap it up.
A case with space. The in-house boutique is brimming with stylish local finds.
Guests enjoy in-room check-in, which includes a personalised selection of tropical fruit. Guests can light up in the smoking lounge or in their room's garden.
Plans are afoot for a child-free policy, so think romantic retreat more than family-friendly fun. Kids are welcome for now though; baby cots are free, extra beds cost US$25 a night and babysitting is US$5 an hour; there's a kids' menu at the restaurant.
