Set around a 17th-Century fort, this chic boutique family-run hotel offers low-key relaxation.

This charming hideaway is set in a sleepy fishing village and offers a refreshing alternative to the livelier west-coast resorts. Here, you can experience the best of both worlds – enjoy the friendly service and amenities of a boutique hotel as well as the home comforts, exclusivity and privacy of a villa. Nothing is too much trouble for the welcoming staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home. Sink into a sun lounger by one of the pretty pools or cross the road to the small but beautiful white-sand beach. Go snorkelling in search of colourful fish or head out on Captain Dwayne’s water taxi for the chance to spot turtles.

The 17th-Century fort has been carefully restored and houses the celebrated Fish Pot Restaurant which is renowned for its delicious seafood. Set across the road from the cottages, the restaurant offers a romantic setting for candlelit dinners with spellbinding ocean views and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. We recommend booking for dinner as this popular restaurant attracts locals and visitors from all over the island. Kuoni customers can also enjoy an exclusive meal here during the summer.

The charming and spacious suites are set in white-washed cottages sprinkled in the gardens or within the historic fort at the water’s edge. Each suite features Balinese furnishings, airy living space and a fully equipped kitchen complete with fridge, oven, stove and microwave. One Bedroom Garden Suites are split-level and overlook the gardens. The Two Bedroom Ocean Fort Suite is even more spacious and is set on the upper level of the historic fort with en-suite bedrooms and incredible ocean views – perfect for families. Kitchens can be pre-stocked with groceries before your arrival so that you’ll have everything you need waiting for you when you arrive.
