    Really nice facilities. Comfortable private rooms, each with a deck and beautiful views. Great swimming and dining areas. Excellent cuisine with the chef accommodating all dietary requirements. Very friendly and courteous staff. Plenty of activities, e.g. snorkelling, sailing, walks, all managed by the Lodge.
