The House Review
Privacy, luxury, and service are hallmarks of this intimate adult sanctuary next door to sister resort Tamarind. The 34 junior and one-bedroom suites wrap around a central courtyard filled with tropical trees, plants, and water features. Guest rooms are simply but elegantly decorated; beds and pillows are big, soft, and fitted with luxurious Egyptian cotton linens. This may not be "home" per se, but you are certainly made to feel welcome with the service, the personalized attention, and the privacy. A 24-hour "ambassador" service caters to your every whim. Dine on the beachfront in a private cabana or at Daphne's Restaurant. You can enjoy the pools, restaurants, and water-sports opportunities—including complimentary windsurfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, waterskiing, tube rides, banana boats, and sailing on a Hobie Cat—at Tamarind just next door. Preferred tee times can be arranged at Royal Westmoreland Golf and Country Club, just a 10-minute ride away. Champagne breakfast, afternoon tea, and canapés at sundown make The House a home. But perhaps most appreciated, a complimentary "jet-lag revival massage" is yours upon arrival.
