Stayed here three years ago and greatly enjoyed the experience; so we decided to return this year at the start of February. As previously, we had a fantastic time; Carrie and Richard work incredibly hard to ensure that everyone enjoys their time with them. Stay here, it's hard to imagine that anyone could be disappointed.

A great, boutique hotel, with warm hosts. To make things even better we had a bunch of like-minded guests as we sat down for dinner in the evenings which made the time fly even faster. Stunning location, nicely off the beaten track. Upstairs suite was delightful with great views. Food was excellent so was the massage. Genuinely delightful spot.

Hence making it in great time. Loved the dinner - it was so great to eat, drink and enjoy and the toddle off...

We loved our stay at Cavalli. Our hosts made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. They welcomed us each morning with a delicious home-cooked breakfast. Attention to detail is clearly a priority. The room was immaculate and the view was everything we had hoped. We fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing. My partner and I...

Carrie and Richard are perfect hosts in this beautiful beach retreat. Our room was absolute luxury right down to the bed sheets! The views are outstanding and we felt total and utter relaxation being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves breaking at the beach below each night. Thank you Carrie! We will be back!

Cavalli Beach House Retreat was amazing, we had the entire lodge to ourselves for the 2 night stay and couldn't have wished for a better time. The lodge itself is kept to the highest standard and the suite we stayed in had the most incredible view across the bay with a huge balcony to relax on. We also decided to...

Picture perfect location. Spacious room with an enormous balcony to enjoy the stunning views. Carrie and Richard are wonderful hosts - knowledgeable & helpful. Fabulous food - generous breakfasts & dinner the first night was so good, we chose to dine in-house the second night. Great to see the emphasis on using quality local produce as much as possible.
