Company info

There is much to do, but if you prefer, simply turn off the clock and laze around while soaking up the balmy tropical atmosphere. You may decide on a refreshing swim in the large freeform lagoon style SOLAR HEATED POOL or take a dip in the beach right outside the Resort, or perhaps a few sets of tennis, a hit of table tennis or even a one-on-one at the basketball ring. A round of golf at the local club might take your fancy or a stroll along the sandy beach... head south toward the estuary and there is barely any sign of civilisation; your own lost tropical paradise to be quietly awed in the face of a rising or setting sun.
