Water-saving is hugely important here as they rely on rainwater only. This small hotel is also great at energy-saving, and they believe in helping their local community and environment too. People making this amount of effort, will certainly be making sure you have a great holiday!

"Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful. Our room was overlooking the bay & had its own balcony. A beautiful view. We spent most of our free time there, just looking! Loved the sustainability policy of the hotel. A more intimate smaller hotel."
