What a great place to relax. The resort faces a very nice beach that gives you breathtaking sunsets. The setting of the resort is stunning. It is a small resort with less than 100 villas. A short walk around the premise will take you about half an hour. You will for sure encounter a few wildlife. Nothing scary, simply interesting.... More
