Our favourite rooms
Suite 335 feels like your own canyon-side apartment, with plush leather chairs and a huge bar. It’s greedy in the terrace stakes – it has one with a hammock off the bathroom, and another off the bedroom with a fireplace and picnic table. If there’s a group of you, book a Patio with Garden or Fireplace and then some of the smaller rooms on the second floor – you’ll have a party pad with living space and somewhere for everyone to crash afterwards. Be sure to book a room away from the pool if you want a quiet sleep.
There are two outdoor pools, a Jacuzzi and hammocks to lounge around in. The pool at the Commune is quieter and more relaxed, and it has trampoline-like circular parasols (but jump on these at your peril).
Your guitar for fireside strumming; your old LPs to stick on the old record player if you’ve booked into a Patio room or above.
Pets are allowed for an extra US$25 a day; there’s even a park for them to play in.
Welcome, but the pool party atmosphere may be best for older kids. Baby cribs and extra beds can be added to rooms, and the restaurant is happy to cater to tots at any time.
Lots of the furniture is made from reclaimed wood and everything that can be is recycled.
