Located 76km from the nearest airport, the Hotel & Resort comprises both suites and villas - and all of which have beautiful sandy beaches (300m worth) and crystal clear waters at their front door. This is an area of the world I've never visited before and because of that, I'm all the more curious about what it has to offer. However for now, let's just fixate a little while on the beautifully crisp, clean and bright interior design; the perfect traditional coastal setting.

The Open Plan Junior Suite shown in the images above contains handpicked antique and contemporary furniture, boasts hand-made floor tiles and even comes with it's own private covered veranda. Heaven? I think so! It really does seem impossible to find anything aesthetically displeasing about the luxurious Caramel Boutique Hotel & Resort, which is supported by the 4.5 (out of 5) TripAdvisor rating it receives - and I don't know about you, but I never book anywhere without having checked out it's online rating beforehand, it can be make or break!
This is probably the most tranquil destination I've featured in my Hotel Wishlist. However, if the whole relax-and-put-your-feet-up thing becomes monotonous, there are various activities available including morning gymnastics, aerobics, underwater diving and mountain biking! Personally, I'd put a couple of days aside to enjoy some of the activities but spend most of my time soaking up the sun on the confetti pool loungers, in between indulging in their fine dining.
On this occasion, I didn't simply stumble across the destination, instead it was pushed under my nose through Harpers Bazaar running a competition to win a stay for two at the incredible Caramel Boutique Hotel & Resort for five nights in a luxury Bungalow Suite! If you choose to enter - good luck! However, if your daydreaming has blended with reality and you're determined to stay there, the Caramel Boutique Hotel & Resort is currently offering 15% off accommodation up until the end of this week.
