Snorkelling and scuba diving offer the chance to experience the varied marine life, from leatherback turtles, to the incredible variety of tropical fish, dolphins and the Atlantic Dugong - a mysterious creature that is critically endangered.You can also enjoy windsurfing, kayaking and dhow cruises, to name but a few. After a tranquil sunset cruise, you can return to your suite to relax in private or watch as the resort turns into a romantic haven as evening sets in.

The tropical bar is set beside the freshwater swimming pool and together they create a wonderful place to spend an afternoon relaxing and cooling off in style, perhaps nibbling on some poolside snacks.

If you feel like spending some time indoors, relax in the lounge or curl up on a sofa with a book. Alternatively, the quaint library offers another cosy place to read and relax, or browse the small curio shop for gifts and souvenirs.

The gazebo on the jetty is a perfect setting for sundowners or romantic private dinners close to the beautiful turquoise ocean.
