Our favourite rooms
Honeymooners wishing to while away days with private canoodling should ask for Park Water Villa 51: it's the last villa at the end of the jetty, so there'll be no foot traffic to disrupt the romance. If you don't mind passers-by, Park Pool Villa 6 normally has a prime beachfront position – but be aware, the sands can shift and move throughout the year.
The 44m freshwater infinity pool overlooks the ocean and is flanked by chill-out areas, sunloungers and swaying green palm trees. Those wanting a peaceful paddle should seek out the other pool in the secluded spa.
Oxygen tank and underwater camera.
Up to four children are welcome on the island at any time, but the hotel's best suited to adults or loved-up couples. Cots can be provided for a daily rate of US$100; extra beds are US$250 a night. Babysitting is available.
