A gym is also available for those wanting to retain that beach body. The stunning vistas of the Indian Ocean complete with coconut palm trees makes running on the treadmill that much easier. 

Explore the hotel gardens

Set within 80-acres of gardens, The Residence has plenty of tropical greenery to explore. Walk through glorious grounds of flowers, bursting with bright island colour and pizazz. Discover the petting zoo and bird sanctuary, where you’ll feed the donkeys and see tropical birds in paradise. Ideal for families and small children, this also acts as a fantastic safari warm-up before the big expedition. 

Adventure into the ocean with hotel watersports

Kayaking and pedal boating are just some of the watersports on offer at the hotel if you fancy exploring the island coast. Get your flippers and wetsuit ready as there is also the option to scuba dive at nearby sites no further than an hour away. A dolphin safari is also a great option for families wanting to get up close and personal to the gorgeous mammals, even having the option to swim with them. That’s one thing off your bucket list.
