We spent our honeymoon at Ti Kaye and, as you can imagine, wanted it to be unforgettable. We had pretty high expectations and even then the reality exceeded them. In our situation this place was perfect.
Many other reviewers have written about the good things about this place, and we’d certainly agree with them. We thought that the most useful thing to do was to add a few specifics at add to all that:
Dinner is in an open-sided restaurant which is lovely in the evenings. Food there is very good, fairly varied and in a great setting. At lunchtime you can also go to a lower café which is just a stone’s throw from your sun loungers on the beach. My tip: the flying fish baguettes.
We had our first on arrival, and were smitten. We’ve been trying to replicate the formula ever since (not completely successfully).
Charming and sincere, and they make you feel very personally welcome in the way they greet you by name, chat with you about what you’ve done and recommend things to try (thanks Theresa, Sandi & Giselle!).
It’s just so nice having a whole airy chalet to yourselves; it feels very un-hotel-like. Each one apparently has its own ‘house’ lizard (don’t worry, they’re quite small, and they eat bugs). Wonderful sea views and the selfishly nice feeling of seeing the boats from the other resorts having to leave ‘our’ bay after their snorkeling excursion. There’s also an intoxicating sound of the frogs and crickets at night that you’ll always remember. Oh and the outdoor shower really is wonderful.
There’s a dive-shop next to the café on the beach, and the dive-master was very enthusiastic, helpful and chatty. There’s a turtle sometimes lurking nearby and an excellent wreck just out in the bay if you’re feeling adventurous.
We happened to go in June when we had tropical showers. Make sure you bring some books to read from your hammock, or games to play on the verandah if you’re caught out.
We also did the turtle watch which was organized by Heritage Tours; the hotel staff can book you onto it. The beaches on the Atlantic side are a complete contrast, being wild and with a big surf… and nobody else for miles!
Enjoy it – we certainly did!
