Our favourite rooms
At 240 square metres each, the Single Pavilions offer more than enough space, but our favourite is definitely the enormous 480-square-metre Deluxe Single (number 38), which comes with an L-shaped private pool. Double Pavilions 19 and 20 both sleep four. All villas have light, airy interiors with double-height rooms that soar up to the rafters, white walls, pale wooden furnishings and an arsenal of gadgets.
Stone-clad walls separate the two tiers of the main swimming pool and rise into plant beds for the greenery shrouding the upper pool, where sunloungers await.
Bring your tin whistle – the resort holds occasional jam sessions in the bar area.
The Wellness Spa offers tantalising treatments including crystal healing hot stone therapy, steamed-rice facials, and a 90-minute coffee ritual for men. Rather than booking several treatments separately, check out the packaged rituals.
Under-16s are not allowed in the resort.
The resort is proud of its responsible tourism credentials. It recycles water and paper, and, where possible, forges links with the local community.
