Rooms combine indoor and outdoor living that truly compliment the surrounding environment. Don't worry- even though the resort itself is small, you definitely won't be bored! There is a lot to do, including yoga on the beach, bird walks, a game room. Love nightlife? There's a restaurant that hosts a late night party complete with a DJ and steel drums to keep you dancing all night! There are two sister hotels nearby that guests have access to, including Estancia Vik, a countryside ranch resort where you can horseback ride down the coast and through the planes.
