Virgin Holidays View
This very popular adults-only resort is on its own little stretch of paradise, with the pure white flat sands and crystal clear waters of Maroma Beach. Spread across 500 acres of unspoiled beach and rainforest, all the suites are nestled in the carefully manicured gardens. At its heart is the huge infinity swimming pool, which offers stunning views of the electric-blue waters of the Caribbean stretching out in front of you. This hotel offers elegance and a wealth of activities that will keep you amused all day. Try a treatment at the spa* or tee off at the nearby golf course where you receive 1 round of complimentary green fees per person per day (mandatory golf cart*). There are plenty of water sports on offer such as sailing, windsurfing and kayaking. Still got energy to burn? Well how about the weekly Stargazing Rock n’ Roll Beach Party, where you can keep warm round a bonfire on the beach whilst gazing at the stars through beachfront telescopes. For true night owls, there is Desires Music Lounge, with a resident DJ and a selection of tropical drinks to keep you going until the early hours.
