Rooms

This relatively small hotel is made up of eight different room types and although that may seem confusing it can be broken down fairly easily into the following categories. The lowest category is the Standard room which can accommodate up to two adults and one small child. The room is well finished, houses a queen size bed and has a small window. One category up are the Deluxe rooms which can be set up as double or twin and feature either floor to ceiling windows or private balcony. These rooms are slightly bigger than the Standard rooms and requests can be made for window or balcony rooms. Next and bigger still are the family options, the Deluxe Family room comes with its own private balcony and can accommodate up to four adults and one small child. Another family option are the two Pool View connecting rooms which are set up as double and twin and can accommodate a family of five. The resort's two suites, Honeymoon and Essence, cater for every need and add that little bit of luxury to your trip.
