Its an hour's drive to the north of the island to get here, but once you're there you don't want to leave, well, we didn't. Our 2 night 3 day stay turned into 5 days and 4 nights. The pool looks like it drops into the sea. The Jetty is an incredible place for sundowners, cocktails and lunch. The restaurants contend with the best food we've had anywhere and the spa gave me the best scrub, wrap and massage Ive had anywhere after their steam room and sauna. The GM checked up daily on all of us staying there to check we were happy and the rest of the staff were not only helpful and greatly attentive but made you feel totally at home. After 8 days safari this was the only place in the world we wanted to be. The only drawbacks are that watersports are outrageously expensive here, and of course that its an hour from stonetown, but thats a tour that can easily be arranged to slot in on the way to or from the airport. We cant decide if the next trip will be for a wedding, a honeymoon or to rent a villa and bring our friends! Highly recommend.
