Our favourite rooms
Number 22 on the second floor faces out onto the sea, and the bath tub in the middle of the bathroom floor allows you to bathe while gazing at the ocean – with the windows open, you can even sunbathe while you soak.
You can bask in a soft sea breeze on the hotel’s sun-deck, where the large heated pool allows you to swim even out of season. Attentive staff serve cooling drinks to a soundtrack of light lounge music.
The bright and spacious spa has a gym, hammam and sauna. A lengthy menu of facials, massages, body scrubs and wraps, and mani-pedis are available to pamper and prettify guests.
Giant sunglasses and a good book – your essential poolside chill-out kit.
JK Place is more suited to couples.
