Our favourite rooms
The Ocean View Viceroy rooms live up to their moniker, with sea vistas that stretch up and down the coast. For oversized bathrooms with enough space for marble wet rooms, vanity tables and cat-swinging, go for a Grande Room or Empire Suite.
The two outdoor pools are on a sleek terrace, romantically lit with white candelabra by night.
Don't worry if you leave your sun protection or skincare behind, as you can buy everything on site. Leave your bicycle at home – the hotel has bikes to borrow for guests.
Not only are personal trainer appointments available at the gym, but free yoga and beach boot-camp classes are offered seasonally. The amenities fee entitles guests to extra goodies, such as 10 per cent off food in the Cast Restaurant and Lounge (excluding alcohol), maps of running and cycling routes (and staff will send you off with free bottled water), access to a library of more than 5,000 magazines and newspapers, and a range of partner discounts.
