The hotel has an inviting swimming pool and can arrange scuba diving with a local PADI certified operator. And the surfing off the beach is excellent.
Apart from enjoying the sunshine, swimming, working out in the gym or indulging in spa treatments (and letting the kids enjoy the Little Adventurers Club), the main activities on offer here are the excursions (available at a charge) that include boat rides on the Madu river and visits to:
