And so to bed... maybe sleepy, but excited, after your first time windsurfing, or perhaps thoroughly relaxed after a day snoozing on the pristine beach, sipping fresh mango juice and catching up on reading.

Each room is air-conditioned, with a balcony or terrace, DVD player and cable TV. Wake up late and treat yourselves to a lazy breakfast on your terrace.
