Nearby Things to Do

Five heated swimming pools lie within quiet courtyards. The rectangular main pool measures 21 by 11 meters (70 by 35 ft). A jungle rock garden with waterfall and koi pond borders a 17-meter-long (56-ft) freeform pool, which is paired with a 4.5-meter-wide (15-ft) spa tub. A 14-meter-long (46-ft) oval pool is adjacent to a tall, tiered fountain, and a children's pool, and sauna are also available.

Furnished with extra-large, thatched-roof palapas, the hotel's beach frontage extends 225 meters (246 yds) along the ocean, which is usually calm because of shelter provided by Deer Island. Sand and palapas extend around the hotel's south end, offering extra room for sunbathing and shaded snoozing as well as for a volleyball net.

Water sports are available at an adjacent beach and include parasailing flights, banana-boat rides, and rentals for personal watercraft, sailboats, and kayaks. Independent operators also offer scuba diving and snorkeling excursions as well as trips to Deer Island and other islands.
