The residence features 4 apartments on the ground floor and 2 penthouses on top floor. Each apartment is self-catering with one-two to three bedrooms. In addition to that, each apartment has AC and enjoys private entrance from the beach.
All the apartments come with daily housekeeping, private chef for a surcharge, resident manager (who can help you getting the most of your holiday), daily gardener and 24 hs security. In addition to this you have strong wifi and direct connection with our customer care team.
It happens right in front of the residence: white, sandy and with a great reef 1.5 km away. The lagoon is tidal from 0 to 4 meters in full high tide. But don’t worry!
This does’t mean that there is no water in low tide. On the contrary, we have the chance to have the channel in the middle between the low section and the lagoon, hence it means you are going to be able to kite all the time!
