Had a 50 minute therapeutic massage and it was wonderful. The spa itself is large, peaceful and there are two wonderful hot tubs just outside the relaxation lounge. Highly recommend a visit here to recharge.

Booked the Couples Retreat and was not disappointed. The treatment is done side-by-side and starts with a full body scrub that leaves your skin glowing all over. Then follows a Swedish body massage with oil and head massage before you slip into your own Geisha...More

This place offers a series of villas strung out away from the reception. So rooms are massive with jacuzzi bath and a lounge and balcony. Staff are generally helpful and WiFi is excellent
