Park Villa & Over Water Villa

After the high of the dolphin sighting before we knew it, we were at the welcome jetty of the resort. I will just come out and say it – after traveling through more than 50 countries throughout the world, this resort stay experience was the best of them all to date. We had such a fantastic stay that the memories of it will be etched into our minds for the rest of our life.

Check In

A whole army of staff had come to meet us, including the general manager Pierre Lang and the operations manager. There were at least 5 hosts greeting us on the jetty. We were escorted into the dhoni (a relaxing area in the form of an upside down boat sculpted to look like local transport) for check in. We were given iced tea while our information was obtained. Once that was completed, we were led into a golf cart to be taken to the room.

Room

Our stay was two nights in a Park Villa and two nights in an Over Water Villa. We were led to Park Villa #23 to start. It was a south facing separated villa. The design of the building was fabulous. The villa had a separate bathroom and sink area for men and women, and was complete with an outdoor AND indoor shower. It was, in my opinion, supreme luxury. Needless to say, Ms WT73 was very impressed. Everything was to her expectations – and believe me sometimes they are high expectations!!

The villa was equipped with an iPad that contained all the features of the resort, including menus for all the restaurants. In essence, the iPad replaced the usual worn information binder that is found everywhere else. The iPad also contained information surrounding the common flowers, fauna and fish seen around the resort.

Location

We were at the edge of the world. Spending days at the beach was like spending time in complete solitude. There wasn’t a plane seen overhead, a boat passing by on the horizon or the polluting lights of the big city. There was almost nothing between us and Antartica to the south, and Africa to the west. Meanwhile, the resort continued to impress. The resort had a total feel of exclusivity to it. We were the only guests on the main beach area and had the whole place to ourselves. The entire time we were there, I never saw anyone in the main swimming pool. Well, almost all alone with the exception ofma91pmhwho happened to be here at the same time!! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves here.
