My Favourite Place
Without a doubt, my favourite place to lounge is on the rooftop terrace. Equipped with a hammock and comfortable seating areas, you’ll have a panoramic view of the entire west coast of the island making it ideal for summertime relaxation or just to gaze at the sun as it rises or sets. Just imagine sipping on a refreshing glass of Chardonnay in one hand and a captivating book in the other while the sun sets in an amazing 360 view of paradise right in front of you. I think that’s pretty Instagram worthy!
