Our favourite rooms
Book a Deluxe Premium room for extra space, plus an espresso machine (the more caffeine you consume, the more inspired you’ll be to dance around all that extra space). The Suite is the largest option of all, and it comes with a deep-set bath tub.
Take a dip in the long, turquoise pool, then flop onto a striped sunlounger, a comfy cabana day-bed, or a couch in the open-air lounge.
A recipe book – empty – so you can scribble down notes on the dishes you taste, then try to recreate them at home.
This hotel isn’t set up for wheelchair users.
All ages are welcome; cots can be added to all rooms.
Every effort is made to recycle, and there’s not a plastic straw in sight. The breakfast chefs source seasonal food locally.
