This magnificent resort sits on a cliff overlooking the rocky coastline. ... The guest rooms and common areas have a cottage style and are designed with luxury in mind.

AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



There are a number of different styles of rooms, but the overall vibe is clean seaside contemporary, with minimalist art on the walls, digital everything, midcentury-looking folding chairs, and crisp Cuddledown linens. A vanishing-edge pool fronting the sea does indeed seem to disappear into the blue yonder, and there's an upscale restaurant with knockout vistas.
