Full accommodation information

Nestled in the shade of the forest, yet within steps of a white-sand beach, this Small Luxury Hotels of the World resort is built to merge with the natural environment.

From Sea Villas built above the water on stilts to Hill Villas that sit perched up high on the hillside, guests have a large range of traditional accommodation to choose from. The villas offer a variety of views, and tranquillity that is enhanced by the sound of rolling waves or chirping of the jungle birdlife.

Days can be spent accompanying the resort's resident naturalist on his daily trek through the lush jungle, basking in the sun on the beach at Emerald Bay or, for the more adventurous, embarking on a private cruise in a luxury yacht. Closer to home, there's the Spa Village to explore, a four-acre haven offering traditional spa therapies of the region.

Evenings always start by sipping cocktails and deciding which of the three restaurants, with their various cuisines on offer, or varied private dining experiences to choose from. Dining here is a gastronomic adventure, a celebration of the region's culinary arts, with chefs transforming the finest local ingredients into delightful delicacies. Exquisite cuisine served amidst a stunning natural landscape awaits you at each of the fabulous venues.

140 villas and suites. Signature Sea and Spa Villas stand elegantly on stilts over water, while the Garden, Hill and Beach Villas place you within a few steps of nature's abundance.
