The exquisite Water Villas lead out into the turquoise lagoon and have private sundecks. The Beach Villas are equally charming with a little more space and privacy. There are a number of restaurants to choose from, including alfresco dining on the beach. The resort has an Aquum Spa, and offers a range of activities such as PADI diving, water sports, big game fishing and sunset cruises.
