Amazing amazing hotel and so peaceful. Each villa is beautiful, the plunge pools are absolutely amazing, and you have complete privacy with the lagoon as your backyard. The staff is very friendly and very accommodating. Food is very pricey though. The beach is smaller than expected, and when we went there was A lot of wind so rough waves. Enjoyed the complimentary boat tour through the lagoons! I recommend eating at The saffron- superb dining experience. Over all- definitely the perfect retreat for both families and couples.
