Days At Sea Beach Lodge is something for those who are tired of just sun, palms and the ocean. This is much more. This is luxury paradise for gourmet and art lovers. If a piece of fine art, a small disainer made chair or table makes you happy, then this is just for you. And don’t forget to think, what...

We stayed at Days at Sea for 6 nights during what is classified as peak period. However for 90% of our stay we were the only guests and yet we were charged peak rates which was exorbitant. The room was average, lacking in a bathtub and lunch and dinner had to be paid for. It was more expensive staying at...

We stayed for 4 nights at the Artist's Villa. The house was an absolute dream as was the service. Maurice and Beaton took excellent care of us. Their restaurant is also a treat.....absolutely delicious (the decor and atmosphere feel like Mikonos). Spa service is also very nice. I cannot recommend this place enough. It was THE BEST.
