Tropical Jewel: Can You Guess the Resort?

Tropical Jewel-Can You Guess the Resort


This Tropical Jewel is a short flight away from much larger and busier resorts, but a world apart. Sunny, calm days lend themselves to great snorkeling right off the beach, and you may be lucky enough to see dolphins or even whales, in the winter. There's a large free form main pool great for families, but couples aren't forgotten–there's a serene adults-only pool with waterfall and a hot tub/jacuzzi.

We loved the understated elegance and residential feel of our room, with its wooden floors and very comfortable bed–it was hard to get out of it in the morning.

There's even a Toto toilet in the bathroom, which our son, who likes all things high tech, was excited by–it reminded him of Japan.

But you don't want to oversleep too much; for one, there's a great breakfast buffet, with fantastic ocean views.

I headed straight for the fresh sashimi, where both tuna and hamachi were featured, in addition to smoked salmon:

I also couldn't resist a piping hot and very tasty bowl of spicy Korean bibimbap:

Naturally you can also order eggs and griddle favorites such as pancakes from the menu, to be made to order:

Once fueled, you can take to the ocean for some snorkeling or sailing, or go inland for some horseback riding, as we did one day. We were happy to do some slower, gentle riding, as it was only our second time, but experts will want to go private so as to be able to ride at a faster pace.

Don't miss the chance to see and pet the adorable miniature horses:

There's also tennis, golf, and even archery among other sports, and kids have their own dedicated (and complimentary) kids' camp.

In the evening, we enjoyed an excellent Sauvignon Blanc while gazing at the sunset, some sushi, and some off the menu hamachi kama, which was the best I've had in recent memory.
