Helpful Steps to Help You Understand Your Resort and Enjoy Your Vacation to the Fullest!
BRING APPROPRIATE LUGGAGE
Use soft collapsible luggage as there is limited space in the rooms for storage. Hard cases are too bulky.
When not at the pool or going to the beach, please consider wearing longer clothes or a beach towel over your swimwear. This also applies around the reception and the common rooms and while eating in the restaurant.
REEF SAFE SUN PROTECTION
It is estimated that between 6 and 14,000 tons of sunscreen are washed off by humans in the ocean and end up in reef areas every year.
Unfortunately, one of the main ingredients in sunscreen is (oxybenzone), which inhibits the growth of baby corals and kills the coral polyps.
Sun protection is essential and we recommend that you bring sunscreen that does not contain harmful ingredients such as oxybenzone, butylparaden, homosalate, octinoxate and octisaat to prevent the harmful effects on the world’s most biodiverse bodies of water. These sunscreens are easily available in stores or online.
The resort gets its electricity from an on-site generator.
There is 1 USB plug and 2 European ones
“Universal” connector points in every room. The staff will be able to explain which outlets are best for which purpose.
FOR THE LOVE OF WATER
The resort is an environmentally conscious organization that aims to minimize negative environmental impact. One of our strategies is to avoid plastic water bottles.
