Set between rainforest and soft sands, this leading luxury resort appeals to both families and couples.

This exceptional and newly refurbished resort offers a contemporary and understated style that doesn’t distract from the island’s natural beauty. Cross a lily pond lined with flaming torches to the open-air plantation-style lobby where a table filled with exotic flowers provides a stunning centrepiece, and feel a sense of calm wash over you. The perfect crescent of white sand features family and adult areas and the calm waters are good for both swimming and watersports.

Tropical landscaping surrounds the pool and the tranquil gardens offer inviting hammocks. Enjoy a serene sunset yoga session on the Jetty, films at the luxurious Screening Room and top travel reads at the funky library. The ‘Cool Kids Club’ offers a paddling pool, sand pit, jungle gym and mini tennis courts plus fun activities such as lizard hunting and crab racing.

Sample a different flavoured smoothie every morning at breakfast and enjoy healthy dishes including fresh seafood at Indigo on the Beach. Tuck into authentic Italian favourites at poolside Ottimo! or enjoy freshly caught fish at The Jetty Grill which is set on the beachfront. Feast on delicious Pan-Asian cuisine at East – one of the island’s most renowned restaurants and enjoy live music at the Pavilion Bar. You can also arrange Beach and Jetty private dining, whether it's a private group barbecue or a table for two on the sand.

The exquisite and spacious suites are newly refurbished and look like they have come straight out of the pages of an interior design magazine – a perfectly indulgent space to retreat to after a day spent soaking up the sun. They are set in blocks in the gardens or on the beach with a balcony or terrace, and offer daily fresh fruit and bottled water along with a conch shell to put outside your door if you wish to remain undisturbed. Garden Suites and Ocean Suites are split-level with the latter set at the quiet end of the beach. Families will love the ground-floor Beach Suites, just steps from the sand, while couples can enjoy the adult-only Bay Suites (available on request).
