Natural light pours through space-age-style skylights to bathe the hotel’s lobby in sunshine. An elevated walkway leads you here; a spectacular, stylish atrium bestowed with instantly calming views of the golf course and sea beyond.

The hotel’s magnificent One Bedroom Terrace Suite brings the tranquillity of its lush surrounds indoors, with spacious living and dining areas, double vanities, a walk-in shower and a large bathtub begging you to relax in impeccably styled surrounds. It’s the outside, though, that fully defines this suite: a jaw-dropping terrace overlooking the verdant fairways of the resort’s own golf course.

In addition to catering to families with a crèche, CoolZone Kids Club, and children’s pool, the hotel boasts an adults-only pool – the perfect place at which to soak up the peaceful surrounds with a cooling, crafted mocktail.

The plush One Bedroom Terrace Suite, which can accommodate up to four guests, houses myriad amenities to make a stay here extra comfortable. Tempting though it will prove, don’t climb into its sumptuous bed until you’ve had dinner at the hotel’s gastronomic gem, Kinara – the all-new Indian restaurant concept from Michelin-starred Vikas Khanna.
