Guests are invited to enjoy complimentary punch & canapés in the Brigadier’s Lounge hosted by the General Manager. A tradition originating from Brigadier Thomson’s Officers Mess, guests are invited to help themselves to the fully stocked Honesty Bar to to create your favourite drink or cocktail.

Complimentary book and board game library, unlimited use of vintage cruiser bikes and fishing rods are just some of the additional features on offer to ensure your stay is memorable. The resort's pools are framed by shaded pathways and vibrant tropical flora, creating a magnificent backdrop to candle-lit corridors and white wash buildings. Take your pick from two picturesque freshwater pools, the adults only tranquility pool and the heated mineral pool.

Each of the 69 rooms and suites feature oversize beds draped in light muslin netting, warm teak furniture and wide verandahs to ensure guests are given an “experience”, not just a room. Some rooms also offer a private Jacuzzi and twin bedding is also available upon request.
