“Surf, sea, sand, sustainability”

This is a place of dreams where dolphins frolic and manta rays fly effortlessly through the crystal clear waters. With nature so pristine, it’s only natural to want to tread lightly, and this is where Six Senses comes into its own – think organic gardens and paper straws. The best things in life are free – sunsets, surf breaks, and ice cream (every single one of the 42 decadent flavors). For a getaway-within-a getaway, pack your picnic basket and be dropped off on a desert island with nothing but the sea and the sky (and each other) for company.

Best time to visit : December to April
