The Spa is run by the well-regarded Banyan Tree group who specializes in herbal and eastern treatments and the restaurant has everything you can expect from the Four Seasons restaurant group.
If you love the smell of the putting green in the morning, you will all-but-run down to their professional Golf courses. The local area is famous among elites and sporting heroes. It regularly hosts events to set your pulse racing; from international Tennis to Windsurfing championships.
