Virgin Holidays View
Nestled in 10 acres of delightful tropical gardens, this award-winning eco-friendly resort is a sure-fire winner for couples looking for a peaceful and pampering retreat. Stay in exquisite wooden cabins that sit atop sturdy stilts, so you feel like you’re in a tree-house – albeit a luxury one, with polished wood floors, sleek showers with body jets and airy balconies furnished with a relaxing day bed. There are 3 different dining choices from the extensive International buffet at Palm Grove Restaurant to the creative Asian fusion menu at the à la carte Lotus Leaf. Guests rave about the spicy Jamaican ‘Jerk’ chicken that’s served at the Beach Bar and Grill during lunch – don’t miss it! The pool is perfect for lounging in the sun, or it’s a short escorted walk over the road to the celebrated Bloody Bay, a spectacular stretch of white sand beach fringed with picture-perfect palm trees.
