A luxurious yet laid-back all-inclusive resort set on a bluff overlooking two beautiful beaches.

Originally designed as a private residence and exclusive hotel for the owner’s family and friends, this intimate and friendly property has developed into one of the island’s most coveted resorts. With stunning views, world-class service and impressive green credentials, it’s no surprise that the hotel attracts repeat guests and A-listers and boasts a number of prestigious awards – it was voted 3rd in the '25 Best Resort Hotels in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas 2019' by readers of US publication Travel & Leisure. The excellent kids' club and extensive facilities make this a superb option for multigenerational families – there's everything from basketball and squash courts and a world-class tennis centre with four championship courts to waterskiing (with equipment and tuition all included).

One side of the bluff is home to the beautiful but wild Surf Beach, while the other side has the calm Bay Beach, an ideal spot for swimming. Relax in a hammock under swaying coconut palms and listen to the waves breaking on the shore as waiters stroll up and down the sand with cold drinks. The resort is renowned for its sensational cuisine and award-winning restaurants and all meals are included so you don’t need to pay any supplements. The refurbished Tamarind Restaurant serves breakfast and candlelit dinners, and the Sea Grape does barefoot casual lunches and romantic dinners overlooking the ocean. Spend the evening dancing under the moonlight as live bands perform on the terrace.

The spacious ocean-view rooms and suites are scattered along Surf Beach and up the bluff – the latter requires a walk up a steep hill, or you can catch a ride in a golf buggy. Ground-floor rooms offer direct access to the beach while those on the upper levels have the best views. Deluxe Rooms are set in two-storey villas on Surf Beach. Set at the top of the bluff boasting panoramic views, the Terrace Suite and Cliff Suite – each with a private infinity pool – are ideal for honeymooners.
