We took a slight risk and booked the residence for our honeymoon before it was even open!
It was the best decision we made all honeymoon!
It is simply paradise.
Pure tranquility and luxury...
We stayed in a beach front villa and it was incredible. THe private pool is an actual pool rather than a plunge pool. Free wifi. Beds are ultra comfortable. Bathroom is stunning.
The service is second to none. Anything you ask for is done immediately and with a smile.
You get around on foot, bike or by golf buggy if you have eaten too much!
The best aspect has to be the food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are to die for! It rivals any michelin star restaurant in the world!
We had a honeymoon dinner on our vernada one evening... they ask you what you each want for your perfect meal, and you have your own waiter, topping up the champagne all night!
THe spa is magnificent. The pool and beach are well staffed.
We literally could not fault it! If i was being ultra ultra picky, it could do with a bar with evening entertainment for after dinner.
It is one of the best hotels I have stayed in in the world!
