Opened in 2015, this idyllic getaway has 32 massive one- and two-bedroom villas that you'll need to be pried from at checkout. The modern villas, dressed in light and airy whites and pastels and best labelled as Scandinavia chic, feature private pools and poolside daybeds, deep soaking bathtubs and top-notch contemporary amenities, including a bike for each guest.
You can wheel around to five restaurants and bars (the Mexican-Lebanese executive chef is a true talent) including chilled out Smokin' Pineapple, which features swings and hammocks, the Ginger Mermaid bar, and a wine-stocked library. There's various water sports on offer and a supreme spa with ocean-view treatment rooms. And the whole thing is mostly solar-powered to boot.
