A very comfortable hotel with great service and friendly staff. Quiet location with beautiful views. More pricey than places in North Cliff area. We particularly liked the ayurvedic treatment centre with Ravi and Stella. Came back to the UK feeling rejuvenated. We will come again Chris and Clare Williams

This is my second year I have visited Blooming Bay to attend a yoga retreat. The place is beautiful, secluded, with stunning views. The staff are friendly and helpful always going the extra mile to offer service, arranging day trips and answers any question. And the food is excellent, healthy and delicious. A truly wonderful experience and I can't wait...
