In its 21st Annual Readers’ Choice Awards in 2008, Conde Nast Traveler, the most prestigious travel magazine in the world, listed Plantation Bay Resort and Spa as one of the Top 25 Resorts in Asia.
Plantation Bay Resort and Spa is a world of its own. With its sprawling 7 hectares of secluded grounds and a unique selection of pools – freshwater and seawater – it is the perfect fantasy getaway that will make you forget life’s daunting pressures. If you ever heard of the term water therapy – well, there is actually a lot of water here.
A vast saltwater lagoon greets you; and being adjacent to the other (yes, other – there are three) freshwater pools, you can just very easily swim from one pool to the other. Plantation Bay actually has three freshwater pools each of outstanding design and 2.3 hectares of saltwater lagoons. They have water-slides of various shapes and lengths, mist-caves, whirlpools, volcano fountains, bubble-benches, rainmakers and waterfalls of different sizes! Indeed, it brings the swimming pool experience to a whole different level of fun, discovery, adventure and excitement.
The picturesque view of the pools is made even more romantic with the dainty bridges and lovely garden pavilions that you can spot around the area. Plantation Bay Resort and Spa’s elegant guestrooms have a classic and timeless design with air conditioning, hair dryer, in-room safe, television, telephones and a minibar. They also have impressive bathrooms with stone-and-marble finishes, separate tub and shower, and elegant subdued lighting.
Enjoy a wide array of insanely delicious food choices. Palermo is an international Italian restaurant. Kilimanjaro Kafe serves international, Fiji, seafood and Asian specialties. Savannah Grill serves fast-food favorites.
Aqua rides are aplenty: water sports-parasailing, banana boat rides, jet-skiing, motorboats, outrigger, inter-island cruises, water-skiing, hobie cats and more.
