Stylish and contemporary, this lush garden retreat sits on a stunning private beach.

An exclusive hotel cosseted by lush tropical gardens and fringed by a bright white beach – this is a tropical paradise and an opulent escape with plenty of facilities. Spend lazy days upon the private beach set within a peaceful cove, or by one of two expansive swimming pools dotted around the resort. For the active, why not try your hand at some of the watersports on offer which include snorkelling, sailing, kayaking or diving.

You can choose from four restaurants, serving Italian cuisine, seafood fare and other international delights. Dining at Cowrie Cove is a must, where sweeping ocean views combined with the freshest seafood and local ingredients from the market to create a culinary journey.

There are 530 rooms and suites within the resort which are spread over two buildings. Deluxe Rooms are located in the main wing and overlook the gardens or the sea at a supplement, whilst the larger Premier Rooms are in the Ocean Wing and have sea views within stunning surrounds.
