  • All villas are completely separate and we have no indoor common areas.
  • We ask that you please vacate your accommodation during housekeeping service (applicable to Inclusive Rate only).

  • We ask that you wear a mask at our reception (even though it is outdoors) to reduce any risk of transmission. If you do not want to wear a mask or are nervous about in-person contact, please choose the "Self check-in"  option when booking.
