You can enjoy a variety of different flavours at the Banyan restaurant. Plus, you can sip on refreshing cocktails at the Moodhu Bar.

Shall we find out more about that all-villa accommodation we mentioned?

Presenting 100 land-based villas and 30 over-water villas, the only question you will need to ask yourself is beach villa or water villa

The land-based villas are made up of the Sunrise Villa, Palm Villa, Beach Villa and Family Villa.

All beautiful in their own way, you will find comfort and style in each and every villa. They all offer a cosy king-sized bed to retire too, along with free wifi and air conditioning.

At the Sunrise Villa you can wake up to the first peak of the sun rising over the Indian Ocean as you relax on your outdoor daybed.

Or maybe you’re more drawn to staying in the Water Villa? Start the day with a dip in the energising water below, before lounging on your own wooden deck.
