We got engaged here - and I honestly could not imagine a better spot to get engaged! We stayed in the Lagoon villa and was welcomed with champagne and chocolates. The Milkwood restaurant just around the corner offers delicious foods. We relaxed in the jacuzzi at night, which overlooks the ocean, a mini-forest, and the lagoon. The service was fantastic,...

Stayed in the Sea View Suite, with fantastic views of the beach and the ocean from the deck. On the owners recommendation we went to The Milkwood Restaurant, for dinner (3 min walk) which was excellent. Really enjoyed our stay.

Our stay Kennedys was just lovely. We opted for the luxury beach villa which is perfectly suited to a summer stay with a relaxing jacuzzi in the sunken deck. The finishes inside were 5 star - And added treats like robes, slippers, snacks and turn down service make the experience all that more luxurious. James, the concierge, was available for...

My wife and I visited Kennedy’s Beach Villa mid-September and stayed in the Beach Suite.
