Property Highlights

Guests can tune into Radio Kandooma which is played into the breakfast room with a cheery good morning DJ playing music as well as the day’s programme. Watch the sunset on the raised sunset deck (on top of the restaurant or, one step higher, on the lighthouse), curled up on a huge sofa or collapsed into a bean bag with a dry martini in your hand is a moment to die for.
