Excellent Adults-Only Sojorn
Posted Sep 28, 2016
We adored our stay at the Wellesely. We wanted a peaceful, child-free environment and this resort exceeded our expectations. It is true that this is a boutique-style resort punching above its weight for the great price. We stayed in the spacious honeymoon suite, which was stylish, with a high beamed roof and a lovely outdoor courtyard with shower, for that extra tropical feel. The landscaped tropical grounds felt so incredibly peaceful and relaxing, with the 15 suites dotted on either side of a lush green palm-fringed valley with a tiny brook winding through it. The large, wide, blue pool was perfect for relaxing by. I always look for a good pool - and this was one of them! The resort ambles down to a beautiful beach, where there is alabaster sand, aquamarine, crystal clear water and lots of coral populated by a myriad of tropical fish. I saw so many Nemos that I now never need to see a clown fish again. They pop out of the coral, try to shoo you away, then zip back in again. Priceless! There are zebra fish, electric blue fish, yellow angel fish, multi-coloured parrot fish, blue starfish - the list goes on. If you want to catch a small wooden boat out a bit further towards the reef (not too deep for fraidy cats like me), just ask for Benny from the village right next door. Food at the resort was delicious and changes each night to keep up variety. But if you want a dinner change, just walk to nearby Crusoes - it's tacky, good fun for one night! Would definitely return.
