More Hotel Details

As you are whisked across a bridge over the lagoon you will feel as though you've found your own tropical hideaway.

A scattering of rocking chairs on the boardwalk offers the perfect place to sit and gaze out over the ocean at sunset with a cocktail in hand, while the saltwater lagoon is a scenic spot to watch herons, pelicans and frigate birds diving for their dinner.

The unique, newly renovated Tahitian-style Gauguin Cottages are tucked away in gardens close to the lagoon and feature two thatched rooms - a bedroom and a bathroom - connected by an open-air walkway. They are wonderfully private and feature a plunge pool - ideal for honeymooners. The Superior Beachfront Rooms and Deluxe Beachfront Rooms offer you the chance to step straight from your ground-floor room on to the sand or enjoy an unobstructed view from your first-floor room.

The exclusive Deluxe Beachfront Spa Rooms are as the Deluxe Beachfront Rooms but with three spa treatments per person from a specially designed spa menu plus one dinner for two at Ismay's included (within a one-week stay). For the ultimate in luxury choose a spacious split-level Premium Beachfront Suite.
