All villas are individually set up with traditional thatched roofs and natural colour themes, offering private terraces, panoramic ocean views and sunken marble bathrooms, many with private outdoor dining spaces. The Luxury Villas mix in private heated swimming pools and multiple bedrooms, or for true indulgence opt for the sprawling ceilings and exquisite detailing of a Presidential or Royal Villa, with direct beach access, two-three bedrooms, two private dining pavilions and private pools.
Atop volcanic rocks, On The Rocks offers a truly unique dining experience, the likes of fresh lobster and barbecued beef bao buns on offer – or opt for your own personal catch, cooked exactly how you like it. Creole and Indian fusions – think wagyu beef and fresh mahi mahi – come together at aptly-named The Restaurant, framed by flaming torches and ocean views. Finish off the night at the 18th-century, French colonial-style Gunpowder Room – which can also be hired for private dinners – or the beachfront thatched-roof bar, accompanied nightly by a live pianist. For an extra-special dining experience, be sure to book dinner at The Herb Trail, a twice-weekly, communal al fresco dinner by an underground fire pit and smoke house for the likes of smoked meat, seafood sharing platters and firepit-cooked lamb.
Unsurprisingly, The Oberoi offers a fantastically extensive choice of leisure activities, from scuba diving and glass-bottomed boat rides to parasailing and tai chi lessons. Just be sure you don't miss an indulgence at The Spa's luxurious spa suites and private jacuzzis alongside all the classic treatments.
