I stayed here a few years ago and loved it. The staff were lovely and very attentive and the daily yoga classes were fantastic. The rooms weren't 5 star but the food was delicious and they catered for my cancer curing diet. Our room opened out to the gardens and then the sea so it was nice to wake up and jst go straight into the sea to wake up. you could order a juice in your room and hten go for breakfast.The grounds were lovely and the pool at the back was always empty so we had it to ourselves and the sunbeds were nestled in amongst the palm trees so it was very quiet. The massage and treatment huts were really nice in the gardens and quite private. The a la carte restuarant was fantastic. Yoga-The morning and evening classes were Ashtanga and definitely for advanced but my friend who didn't practice as much and struggled was taken off by the other instructor and given a more gently private class which was great. The only down side was the hassle on the beach from hawkers, I still get calls from one boy we sent some parcles to when we got home. The beach and sea are lovely though and it is a small spot of paradise. Definitley recommend if you want to eat healthily and do yoga and meditation. i will never forget opening my eyes after a meditation and the gorgeous view of the sea.
