Kayaks, paddleboards and snorkelling equipment is available for guests to use and a golf course and tennis courts are there to take advantage of.  We have included a night swim with the manta rays, aonce in a lifetime experience to come up close and personal with these extraordinary gentle giants during a night time snorkel.
