Resorts are resplendent in all their tropical glory. The beauty of a resort is that all of your senses are satisfied at every turn. In world class resorts the sense of taste is satiated by the very best chefs catering to your culinary requirements. Your sense of hearing is satisfied with the dulcet harmonies of waves gently crashing upon pristine sands. Your sense of smell is fulfilled with the heady and intoxicating notes of sweet rose and frangipani in the air. Your sense of touch is gratified in the expert hands of one of the many qualified masseuses in the spa treatment rooms. Yet the sense that we are most concerned with is sight, and resorts aim for your eyes receiving an all consuming satisfaction. Resorts offer a vast array of design features that satisfy our thirst for beautiful aesthetics. At every turn the clever designers of resorts have really considered the most minute of details.

Often called a negative edge pool, this design allows for a seamless look and when the ocean is right there on the horizon, a real wow factor is created. It’s a really special experience to swim in one of these pools at a resort. In fact bodies of water and all different types and sizes of pools are what makes a resort feel so luxurious.
