Just returned from the most fabulous trip to Samsara - a paradise oasis perched above its own white sandy beach with crystal clear waters.
Enjoyed yoga on the beach deck cooled by the gentle sea breeze each morning, followed a freshly made al fresco breakfast. Day time activities, apart from just enjoying the wonderfully relaxing villa with its gorgeous pool and panoramic, turquoise ocean views, included on-site treatments (massage, pedicure etc) snorkelling direct from the beach, an afternoon bouncing on the Rave and tennis coaching/games in the cool of the early evening. Off - site there is great diving and kite surfing and this trip we enjoyed a glorious afternoon on a yacht which anchored over a reef so we could snorkel and enjoy the colourful fishes and corals then moored up on a deserted beach so we could just explore.
The evenings were just as special - we had a steel band one night which, with the fire pits blazing, created a really special island atmosphere - but my fondest memory is enjoying the sunset, the ocean view and the star lit night sky from the jacuzzi with good friends and a local rum punch.
The staff were wonderfully friendly, helpful and discrete and kept our rooms and the villa immaculate. The chef produced the most amazing meals with fresh ingredients to our taste.
Xanadu is the perfect romantic cottage for two. You can enjoy the wrap-around terrace with its loungers, plunge pool and alfresco dining area. Then take the private path to a secluded sun-deck and zen sofa with stunning views of the bright blue Caribbean Sea. Follow further down the path and you soon arrive at the private Samsara beach with its white sands and snorkelling over the reef. Self-catering is so easy in the beautifully appointed kitchen-diner and the supermarket is only 5 minutes away. Exclusive luxury at its best!
