Families are welcome too, and we suggest the two bedroom villas for a spacious living space as well as sleeping up to 4 adults.

The resorts prides itself on the island grown fruit and vegetables, picked fresh from their garden. Feast in one of the 2 buffet restaurants, also hosting regular themed nights and a Sunday brunch. Asian Wok, Hot rock and the Meeru cafe compliment the dining experience.
