Let’s get to know each other

Why should you come here?

Experience world-class dining at the numerous restaurants situated near the main reception and pool. We particularly enjoyed the intimate setting of Turquoise, which serves both continental and Asian cuisine against a breathtaking panoramic ocean backdrop. Vela, with its laid-back atmosphere and impressive international menu, is also a must-visit. We received a delightful surprise in the form of a candlelit dinner on the beach, complete with snacks, champagne, and various other delicacies. The rooms, each boasting its own garden or direct walkway to the sea, added to the romantic ambiance.

The most special thing about the hotel

The color of the water is etched in my memory. It's truly incredible – a clear turquoise blue that forms the ideal backdrop for this sandy paradise. No matter where you are in the resort, the ocean is always within view. We were also charmed by the friendly heron that roams the island, now considered its symbol. Don't forget to greet it when you visit!

The staff are incredibly warm and friendly. The team is also quite international – we met individuals from Russia, Ukraine, Europe, and even Costa Rica. The general manager, Brian, hails from Zimbabwe. We enjoyed a delightful evening meal with him and his wife. They even invited us to join them for a party, an invitation we happily accepted!

"Enjoy the glorious sunsets at Chill Bar, situated right by the ocean. Alternatively, watch the sun go down during the sunset yacht cruise. By the way, there's also an early morning sunrise cruise for early birds. Don't forget to check out the live entertainment offered every night, featuring music, dancing, and DJs that will surely get you into the holiday spirit."

For those in search of relaxation, head to The Spa.
