Vista Bar.
For a relaxing vibe,mojitos and a side order of tropical serenity it has to be Vista Bar.
This is the hotel’s beachside bar,a terrific spot for morning coffee or sunset drinks.Take a break from diving in the crystal-coloured pool,grab an in water bar stool and enjoy a fresh cut coconut.This is the best way to live the “island life”.

The Strand Villa 712.
“Just to gaze at the Indian Ocean is balm for the soul” i had heard many times before i visit this place.And from here the crystal blue water is only steps.





Tucked under sky scraping palms right on the beach,this villa is drenched in afternoon sunshine and sea breezes.
Behind the fence,there is a real home away from home,actually much better.
I have stayed at many five star hotels/resorts during my travels.This 131m2 intimate residence can hardly be found even at the most luxurious properties in the world,i can assure you that.
Natural light and plenty of space is key to the relaxing feel.The one-bedroom Strand Villa 712 is charmingly furnished and presented.Wood-floored with impressive decorative details,it features a huge living room with a dining area,a fully equipped kitchen,a walk-in wardrobe and a powder room.
It is finished to a very high standard with a comfy king-size bed,a work desk and a luxurious,super spacious bathroom with a flat screen TV,a separate bathtub and an outdoor rain shower.
However,the biggest attraction remains the villa’s private terrace.Featuring a big private pool,this tropical garden is an oasis of serenity.The terrace’s sun beds offer relaxing tanning sessions while Bale Bengong,the rectangular gazebo gives an extra option for chilling out or sleeping.
From here guests have direct access to the villa’s exclusive sun beds on the beach.
Providing carefully selected amenities and the latest facilities,this villa gets the award for the most comfortable stay in the island.
Among them:An outstanding selection of Reméde toiletries,beach bag and hats,complimentary wifi,24 hours Butler service and complimentary round trip airport transfer.
