There are 41 individual thatched villas, each built of wood and stone in keeping with the region. Each villa has its own private plunge pool around which guests may enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner. The three-bedroom Presidential suite stretches over two floors with its own private butler and chef to see to all your culinary needs.
