The place to stay for those who swoon over elegant Zen style, the hotel's 55 villas are set in an old orange-tree grove (hence the name) and along its granite hills among enormous granite boulders. Overflowing with details like intricate stonework, dangling walls of shells, finely wrought mobiles of driftwood, water features, stone Buddhas graced with flowers and the like, the ambience fuses a Seychelles and Southeast Asian–spa style. A lush jungle landscape adds to the exotic appeal, but steep hillsides mean dependence on buggies to get to some rooms. Though the hotel's beachfront annex offers a swank beach bar, two restaurants, and a pool, the actual beach here is not fantastic.
