  • is the shower over the bath? Do you have walk in showers?
    Hi, thank you for your question, our showers are similar to a roman shower with a small step, so not really a bath. We have an apartment undergoing renovations to create a walk in shower, so we will have one in the near future. Thanks

  • Is the bedroom behind a door, or are there just light dividors that don't block the light? Thank you
    Hi, thank you for your question, I have allocated you to a room with full dividers for the bedroom. It is on the top floor. The rooms are still quite light due to having vertical blinds on the windows and doors. I hope this is suitable.

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.
