Looking East over the bay
The Pool Bar
The infinity pool is breathtakingly beautiful, warm and comes complete with a bar that you can swim up to. Take a seat at the water’s edge, ring the bell for service and soak up the views across the pool. The pool bar is warmed by the afternoon sun, making it perfect for languid moments when all you want to do is pause and enjoy.
If you’re hankering after a more traditional space where you can put your feet up and get stuck into your literary tome, head to the library. It’s air-conditioned and furnished with comfy arm chairs and shelves of books, newspapers and DVDs to borrow.
Flanking the infinity pool is the Laguna Bar. Fans whirr above huge chairs and sofas furnished in purples and reds, and the polished wooden floor feels super-luxurious. There are no walls or windows along the side of the bar so you can enjoy uninterrupted views across the pool and out to sea. If there’s a downpour of summer rain, head here – enjoy the chill out music and sound of water from the pool, order drinks and snacks from the bar, and get reading.
