Blue Waters & The Cove Suites 5 star

 

Intimate with impeccable service

Contemporary chic meets classic colonial style at this beautiful resort that offers a taste of tropical paradise on the north-west tip of the island. The fresh white décor accentuated by warm wood provides an elegant feel and the service is second to none. Stroll along powder-soft sands in search of secluded coves and wade into calm waters that are perfect for swimming and watersports.

Relax on a plush sun-lounger on the beach deck or by one of the stunning infinity pools that merge with the turquoise ocean beyond. Explore gorgeous gardens draped with bougainvillea and hibiscus while looking for hummingbirds and listen out for the chorus of tree frogs in the evening.

Enjoy breakfast on the terrace, casual lunches and sophisticated dinners at the seaview Palm Restaurant. For intimate dinners in air-conditioned comfort head to the newly refurbished and contemporary Bartley’s Restaurant which offers sharing plates or enjoy breathtaking ocean views at the clifftop Cove Restaurant.

Carolyn's beach bar and restaurant serves light bites, salads and flat breads for lunch on the terrace and the Pelican Bar is a lively venue for cocktails. There is also a casual beach bar and pool bar.

The rooms are scattered in blocks around the resort. Superior Hillside Rooms are tucked into the hillside and feature newly remodelled bathrooms. The Deluxe Beachfront Rooms are just steps from the beach, have been completely refurbished, and feature brand new bathrooms. The spacious Hillside Junior Suites are suitable for families and can interconnect with Superior Hillside Rooms while Ocean View Junior Suites are situated closer to the beach. The incredible Cove Suites and opulent three-bedroom Penthouse Suites offer a spellbinding clifftop location and access to four exclusive infinity pools.
