Perched on a quiet peninsula, this is a beautiful and expansive village-style resort.
A great choice for families, the resort’s facilities include three swimming pools, plenty of landsports and a mile-long golden beach where a number of exciting watersports await. If you fancy venturing out of the complex, hire a bicycle from the concierge and head down to the village, where an array of restaurants, shops and the chic Abu Tig Marina can be found.
The variety of restaurants each have something different, with buffet dining at Palavrion, oriental and seafood specialities at El Sayadin, and exotic Thai dishes at Bua Khao. Bua Khao is popular, so booking a table is recommended. If booking the all-inclusive package, you can dine à la carte or opt for a more casual buffet experience at a selection of venues. Be sure to book a table at Bua Khao for a delectable taste of Thai cuisine as demand here can be high.
Classic Garden View Rooms all promise garden views, while more indulgent Deluxe Rooms feature sea views and you'll get sparkling wine on arrival, as well as daily mineral water and free Wi-Fi.
