Hotel Amenities

The lagoon beside the resort is tidal and too shallow for swimming or snorkelling, but the sand here is a brilliant white. It’s a 20-minute walk alongside the lagoon estuary to the Natural Swimming Pool, a delightful beachfront picnic area with fantastic swimming and snorkelling. You can also access the area by kayak or bicycle, both complimentary.
