Please be aware that our Villas are not air-conditioned and the climate during the warmer months from October to January can be warm and humid. We have made a number of architectural modifications to our villas to improve cross flow ventilation including under-floor vents, multiple louvered windows and high efficiency ceiling fans. The result are villas that are naturally cooled and ventilated by the prevailing sea breezes however if you have a particular aversion to warm and humid conditions, we would suggest scheduling your stay for the cooler months (April – September).

A maximum of 14 guests can be accommodated at the resort at any one time.
