Step into paradise, where tropical gardens flow right to the beach, with miles of glistening white sand rimming the Caribbean, to a far off peninsula. Magnificence in true definition, with white marble flooring through a spacious lobby set on a lagoon, buried in exotic foliage. An entrance befitting for a king. Edwardian furnishings in rich wood, tapestry carpets, pillars with hanging vines, herons wandering through ponds of goldfish. A tropical greenhouse with sculptures in bronze, stained glass inserts in lattice framing open walls, floral displays of red ginger and bromeliads, bird of paradise and ferns. Groupings of embroidered chairs, wrought-iron tables and towering candles. A private gazebo named Julio Iglesias (perhaps he sat there) with peacock chairs, in a setting of green splendor extends from this tropical haven.
A dazzling Resort, weaves through botanical gardens, with an area of individual gourmet restaurants, each structure depicting it's theme. French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Mexican, Seafood, Steakhouse, International - giving an amazing selection of 13 restaurants! Which also includes the grill on the beach, and more casual style restaurants with buffet. (lobster on the menu too!)
Ten swimming pools! One for each day of the week if you choose to be so decadent. Two state of the art Spas, with Arabian style tents for massages in the garden.
Weddings: An exceptional setting of beauty in a private garden. A white dome held by pillars is adorned with statues of angels playing musical instruments. The true magic of this majestic setting is only enhanced by an elegant horse drawn carriage for the bride and groom.
