About 20 of us stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate my sister's milestone birthday. We rented 4 of the 6 villas (each villa has 3 bedrooms).
The setting is idyllic - the architecture is a perfect combination of clean, contemporary lines with furnishings, finishing and decor that is luxurious and reflective of indigenous themes.
The views - be it sunrise, oceon, pool - are painfully beautiful.
The food (menus had been pre-selected) was varied (crabs, freshly baked stuff, meats and vegetables of all kinds - my favourite - homemade cashew nougat) and divine.
The service was unparalleled. Faiza, the proprietress - keeps a close eye on ensuring the meticulous standards are upheld - and is a charming hostess.
The beach is secluded (we had the strip to ourselves) - could count on one hand the number of people we saw .
Lovely infinity pool - great seating options - topped with being served fresh coconut juice.
This is close to heaven - looking forward to returning.
