Perched on a hillside and patrolled by some of the island's 3500 free-roaming giant tortoises, this breathtaking resort is home to 16 elegant villas that each feature staggering water views, a large infinity pool, Jacuzzi, personal butler and no less than 400-sq-m of space to luxuriate in. The vistas in your villa follow you from the entrance hall into the immaculate glass-walled bedroom, where you can watch the horizon brighten at dawn from the comfort of your huge bed. On the opposite side of the villa is the lounge, which manages to blend chic style with bare-foot comfort – its soft sofas are perfect for air-con ocean gazing when the sun chases you inside. Meals can be taken in your villa, on the beach, in the main restaurant or in the 'tree house' that sits up in the forest canopy. The quality and variety of dishes (from Wagyu steaks and sushi to Thai curries and pizza) are off the chart. There are activities aplenty, ranging from nature walks, swimming, fishing, diving and snorkelling. Soothing treatments are always available from the resort's Rock Spa.
