Our favourite rooms
With the exception of the Junior Suite, all rooms in the 36-room Pineapple House can accommodate two adults and one or two children. Best for parents with babies or small families, these breezy, ocean-facing rooms are styled by Ralph Lauren and each have one or two four-poster beds (connecting rooms are also available). For more privacy and space, splash out on a Classic Villa (two to four bedrooms, some with small private swimming pools) with a private lawn for outdoor play, set just steps from the beach. And, with a dedicated villa staff, you’ll have an extra pair of hands to serve breakfast or help pack your brood up for the beach.
A smooth stone deck, dotted with blue-cushioned sun-loungers and bright white umbrellas, surrounds the unheated double-vanishing edge infinity pool. Toddlers will love splashing and wading in the shallow end; more advanced swimmers can paddle off to the deep end, which cascades into a spacious spa pool on the ocean’s edge. Lifeguards are on duty from 9am to 5pm and pool toys are available to borrow. There's also a tranquil adults-only pool at the spa.
Tucked away in an 18th-century guest cottage on the ocean’s edge is the tranquil and tropical spa, open from 9am to 6pm. There is a full menu of invigorating and revitalising treatments – Jamaican coffee bean body scrub or exotic pineapple body buff, anyone? And be sure to take a plunge in the adults-only pool at the spa. If you fancy a day of pampering with your teen, a specially designed menu with massages, facials, manicures and pedicures for ages16+ is also on offer.
Use of kids’ club and all non-motorised watersports are free for guests.
Schedule appoints one week prior to arrival for the seven-treatment room spa, tennis courts, deep sea fishing trips, yacht charter, private sailing tours and sunset cruises.
