What to Expect

A cozy and colorful retreat comprised of private suites in free-standing huts on Love Beach

Resort Details

Individual, free-standing huts line Love Beach, making it the ideal base for diving and snorkeling. Perfect for an intimate getaway, it’s unlikely you’ll see more than a few people on the beach at a time, offering an air of peace and privacy away from the hustle and bustle of the city center while still being just 10 minutes from the airport.  No matter which colorful hut you call home during your stay, rest assured it will have a balcony, flat-screen TV, refrigerator, safe, WiFi and AVEDA hair and skincare products. The studio, one bedroom and two bedroom huts are all only steps away from the resort pool and Love Beach—each night the sound of waves will lull you to sleep. The chefs at this resort serve up a variety of dining experiences from a casual meal at the outdoor lounge to a candlelit dinner on the private dock.

If you visit just for the spa, your journey would not be in vain. This inviting space will feel like your own private escape—the warm atmosphere welcomes you and the staff’s attentive service create an otherworldly experience. Whisk your worries away with a couples massage on the pier heightened with essential oils and endless views of turquoise water or a Watermelon Vodkatini manipedi—guarantee you won’t find that elsewhere!
