This relaxing village-style resort has a host of activities and is ideal for both families and couples.
Spread out in lush grounds, The Verandah Resort & Spa has a laid-back vibe and never feels crowded. One of the beautiful beaches is dedicated to non-motorised watersports and the cove-protected waters are perfect for snorkelling and kayaking. Join a game of beach volleyball, pick one of many peaceful spots dotted around the resort, or explore the gardens during a game of mini golf past ponds, waterfalls and tropical flowers. The resort has the island’s largest freeform freshwater swimming pool as well as a peaceful adults-only pool and a brand new infinity pool which is located on Rasta Beach and features a raised sun deck.
Two restaurants – Seabreeze and Buccaneer – have casual family-friendly à la carte dining and themed buffet evenings. Dress up for dinner at Nicole’s featuring a new bar and enjoy fine steaks and lobster. There is also the Beach Bar & Grill, the new Wadadli Snack Shack and the rustic Rasta Bar, or you can enjoy evening entertainment at the pool bar. Enjoy soft drinks, tropical juices, rum punch and cold beer at the new Lazy Pelican Beach Bar on the watersports beach.
The spacious single-storey suites are dotted in clusters around the resort and have a queen-size sofa bed – ideal for families. Hillside Suites overlook gardens and Water View Suites are nearer the sea with garden and partial ocean views. Waterfront Suites are perched on the hillside with unobstructed ocean views. Rooms can interconnect through the balcony for larger families or groups.
