The perfect destination for relaxation, there are three impressive swimming pools (one for adults only, the Palms pool is heated in low season) and a brand new Anantara Spa. Asian-influenced treatments focused on ancient healing traditions are extensive and indulgent, as you would expect from this very high-end brand, and there is also a Turkish Hammam, yoga and thai-chi sessions and a high-tech gym. Golf enthusiasts will revel in the 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Arnold Palmer, which can be directly accessed from the hotel.
There are a number of delicious restaurants to choose from including the new fine dining ‘Sensai’ with Asian flavours, Portuguese restaurant ‘Victoria’ or an à la carte seafood lunch at ‘Ria’ in a tranquil pool setting.
