Winter visitors should check out the onsite market every Sunday: local artisans vend handcrafted trinkets and paint faces for the little ones.
Vibe and atmosphereSun dapples and naturally warms the scattered daybeds—the preferred resting spots for guests lingering poolside or on the sundeck. When the mediterranean sol shines a bit too bright, cold water jacuzzis prove a refreshing respite. By evening, locals and siesta-charged visitors alike flock to La Veranda for homestyle cooking from Chef Lucia Ferrer.
Overall look and feel of the roomsThink revamped haciendas: whitewashed walls are bathed in natural sunlight that floods in large windows, private patios come furnished with sitting spaces and daybeds, ensuite bathrooms are practically spectacles, with authentic tiling and walk-in showers, and cozy fireplaces provide the perfect crackling soundtrack to an evening nightcap.
Service styleGuests are greeted with a personal tour of the bucolic grounds; after settling in, they're invited to relax with a freshly mixed mojito in one of the many chaises. The infinitely kind front desk will is happy to recommend hidden island gems, or book a yoga-laties class in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
Preferred room typeThose seeking that extra respite will relish the privacy afforded by the suites in the new villa enclave: the furthest from the main area, these roomy nooks are the preferred spot for lovebirds.
Unique property featuresGuests are treated to eastern-style luxury in the spa, where a temple designed like Balinese grandeur houses masseuses and skin technicians skilled in the art of rejuvenation.
