This resort made a big splash when it opened in mid-2007 with a magnificent rock waterfall as a centerpiece and the wow-factor, too, flows throughout. Guest rooms are spacious and stylish, while suites have full kitchens including all utensils and a large fridge. There's a kids' pool with impressive waterslide, an adults-only one and, set before the beach, a third lagoon-style pool with a swim-up bar fringed by imported white sand. All this creates a less stuffy atmosphere than that of some neighboring resorts.
