A charming resort tucked away in tropical gardens with a superb choice of meal plans.

The spectacular setting and exceptional service make this attractive Mediterranean-style resort an ideal choice for a relaxing escape. The platinum-sand beach lapped by turquoise waters is straight out of the pages of a glossy travel magazine, and the resort’s laid-back atmosphere creates a traditional island vibe. The warm waters are perfect for a paddle or watersports including windsurfing. Find a shady spot by the main pool which meanders through exotic gardens and stroll around the waterfalls and rock pools, framed by the resort’s namesake bougainvillea flowers. This is a family-friendly hotel – kids have their own club with activities including arts and crafts, storytelling and games, and there's also a games room with everything from air hockey to table tennis.

Calabash Café offers beachfront dining with local favourites such as blackened flying fish. Enjoy a weekly Caribbean buffet and floor show with vibrant entertainment from fire eaters, limbo dancers and stilt walkers.

The studios and suites are generous in size and equipped with a kitchenette or full kitchen, and there's a small shop nearby so you can stock up on essentials. The Two Bedroom Beachfront Luxury Suite – complete with two bathrooms and a living room – is particularly good for families and groups. The Honeymoon Suite on the top floor has stunning ocean views.
