Inspired by the Caribbean, this beautiful resort is a relaxing haven in the heart of the adventure.

This resort is inspired by the beautiful islands of the Caribbean. With cascading blue waterfalls dotted around the lush green grounds, you’ll want to grab a cocktail from the moment you arrive. Every detail has been carefully considered to immerse you in the old-world charm of a historic island retreat and set you at ease in a relaxed Caribbean-style atmosphere.

At the heart of the resort is the 16,000-square-foot pool, set on a white sand beach with a cascading waterfall at its centre. The kids will love the interactive water play area, and even big kids can enjoy the water slide. If you crave a bit of privacy, poolside cabanas are available to hire, offering ceiling fans and a basket of refreshing fruit.

Dining here embraces the delicious flavours of the Caribbean. Watch your food being prepared at the open exhibition kitchen of Amatista Cookhouse™, with its al fresco dining option, or enjoy calming views of the hotel’s waterfalls as you enjoy Strong Water Tavern’s tapas-style menu. Whilst relaxing poolside, you’re just a few steps away from the Drhum Club Kantine bar and grill which serves freshly-grilled fare and speciality cocktails (guests must be 21 or over to consume alcoholic beverages; you will be required to show a valid photo ID). If you’re looking for a quick bite, head to the New Dutch Trading Co.™, a quick-service marketplace. The relaxing inspiration of the Caribbean carries through into the rooms, which are a comfortable haven after a day of adventure.
