“We want to welcome travellers who are looking for an unforgettable and quiet holiday,” says owner Rafael Adrián who has decided to turn this into an adults-only hotel on November 1st.

This resort is geared towards honeymooners and others who want to relax in peace on this small island in the Indian Ocean, surrounded by white sandy beaches and warm blue water glowing with coral gardens. All 65 villas are on the beach or in the lagoon and each has at least partially open-air bathrooms, some with Jacuzzis. Doubles from $350 (€259) half board.
