          This property had such great accommodation and facilities. I particularly loved having the bedrooms upstairs and the 2 hot spas which made winter swimming possible! Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and will certainly be returning.

          Hi, I heard the pool is excellent. But we plan to visit during mid August. I want to check whether it's too cold to visit. I heard the pool is heated in previous reviews, but guests still complained the pool being cold. Just wondering what temperature is pool heated to, would it be a good idea to bring family with small children during August as pool would be the main entertainment. Thanks

          Hi, The heated pool mentioned in previous reviews is our lap pool which is located in the gym area. Our main lagoon pool which is the resort feature is not heated unfortunately. Regards, Ben
