Our favourite rooms
We love the three open-plan Grand Studios, which have a floating kitchen island counter that seats four, designed for in-room dining. These studios also have plenty of lounge space, a Brionvega TV with headphones (so children can watch cartoons without disrupting mum and dad), a circular sofa and a large balcony overlooking the pool. If you’re here with teens, book the groovy-baby Sunset Studio, which has its own bar and on-loan bartender plus two balconies, so you can spy on the stars at night and the ocean, pool and sunset by day. (Don’t be surprised if Smith Junior ends up in your capsule-style king-size bed.) This bright-blue studio has an in-room dining area that seats four and can connect to one of the Grand Studios, making it a good choice for larger families. Both the Grand Studios and the Sunset Studio have an ensuite bathroom with a bath tub and rainhead shower.
Fancy some poolside tunes but forgot your iPod? Take a deep breath and disappear beneath the surface of Luna's pool to listen to the underwater beats pumping out. Lined with Mondrian-inspired, colour-block mosaics, the pool is surrounded by loungers for those who’d rather keep their heads above water and recline with a granita (or something boozy). The swimming pool has a shallow end and welcomes water babies at all times; arm-bands and swimming aids can be supplied.
There isn't a spa, but pampering treatments can be arranged (either in-room, or by the pool).
