At 4 pm sharp everything stops for your villa master to serve you the Indian Ocean’s finest afternoon tea. Everything you ask for and more can be done in a heartbeat, from drawing you a bath to unpacking your case and serving you breakfast by your own private pool.
"What an experience - we had a private villa with a pool and the butler service was out of this world. The attention to detail in everything he did for us was second to none and would bring us pre-dinner drinks and canapes every day. I was totally blown away."
- Jenny, Travel Counsellor
