You also can enjoy a complimentary Brigadier's Punch & canapes each night at twilight at the elegant Brigadiers Bar & Lounge.

The Reef House boasts an exceptional day spa that offers an array of enchanting treatments that will have you relaxed and glowing. There are also three beautiful swimming pools framed by shaded pathways and vibrant tropical flora, creating a spectacular backdrop to the candle-lit corridors and whitewashed buildings. Take your pick between the deep freshwater pool with a waterfall, the large heated pool with jacuzzi, or the private heated spa.
