Inside, red accents explode amidst airy white interiors. High-tech toys and gourmet treats create an indoor playground, and the rain showers, your private waterfalls. For more, ring your personal Thakuru – your whim is our command.

Velvety salmon, smoked and sophisticated, or the creamy milk chocolate of childhood. Your favourite melody surrounds you, high-tech speakers filling in every note. Before bed, slip under the rain shower, and let rivulets of water stream down your body like soft caresses.
Two Bedroom Ocean Pool Pavilion
