About Coral Reef Club

Coral Reef Club was originally a luxurious house and to this day the hotel has kept much of the home atmosphere blended with a friendly and superb service. Set in 12 acres of matured gardens beside a beautiful white sand beach, the colonial style coral-stone buildings reflect the gentle mood of this intimate property.

Excellent personal and attentive service plus fine dining are a high priority at the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World”.

This hotel will appeal to those who appreciate a quieter and slightly understated setting and is most suited to couples and older families as children’s activities are only available in peak season.
