Surrounded by lush, tropical gardens, palm trees and exotic birds, The Reef Retreat offers seclusion and privacy on the one hand, but is in the centre of a cosmopolitan seaside village. The architect's extensive use of timber ramps, walkways, louvre windows and bi-fold doors creates a unique tropical experience.

The four room types are located in three two or three storey buildings.

The two-bedroom villa has a spa bath, a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and a private laundry.
