The resort in which it is located also has a bustling “village” right on the water’s edge, with a personal fitness centre, boutiques, tennis courts and a well-being lounge.
The luxuries don’t end there, as the villa includes a private villa host (butler) service, a private chef with the option both of in-villa and in-room dining, laundry and daily house cleaning, an attentive concierge service and a babysitting service to allow adults to enjoy some time alone. There is also a kids club (8 months to 13 years) and teens club, to ensure the entertainment and contentment of the entire family.
