The Sunshine Suites are located in 3 bungalows, named: Clove, Cinnamon & Coconut surrounded by tropical garden. There are 4 rooms in each building: two upstairs and two downstairs. Between the bungalows and the sea we have a swimming pool. From most of the rooms you can see the Ocean, from others - the tropical garden. In all the Sunshine Suites you can relax on the comfortable furniture on spacious balconies or verandas.
Suite is the most luxurious room, located in a separate building, for extra privacy, right on the beach. It has its own garden with beach banda and a plunge pool on the veranda.
