Cant fault the place.
If your not a golfer , I recommend that you take a spin on a golf cat around the Golf Course and take in the outstanding views.
A wonderful experience.
Everyone made our stay exceptional and very memorable.

After a long trip from Italy and a never-ending drive from Auckland, we arrived to this incredible lodge, which really excedeed our expectations.
The location itself is incredible...sea, beaches and immaculate land all around: so unspoilt you could believe to be the only one left on earth.
We were greeted by the most polite staff ever and shown our room (deluxe suite); a lovely cottage facing either the sea and the golf course. The cottage itself was extremely well appointed, with a nice fireplace, huge terrace and a beautiful bathroom.
The main building and its lovely dining rooms and sitting rooms with burning fireplaces add coziness and make you feel as a welcomed guest at a friends' home.
Breakfast and dinner were included in our rate and both were above excellence, although with limited choice of dishes. The wine list was however extensive.
The golf course was perfectly maintained and we played 18 holes with the greatest pleasure.
Nice SPA and very good body massages for both of us; very small indoor heated lap pool with jacuzzi, good fitness room. The path from the main lodge building to the Spa through the rich tropical forest is fabulous!
But what really makes the difference from other 5 stars hotels, is the attentiveness of the staff...always present but unobtrusive, always trying to anticipate your wishes. They made our stay really memorable.
We would definitely return and strongly recommend it.

The stunning location and scenery is complimented by the warm and caring service and reception of the staff. I was visiting for a short business stay, and sadly didn't get to enjoy all that was on offer, but it gave me enough taste to know I'd want to return. Everything from the setting, the food and service was first class.
