Though perfectly primed for families, the Ritz-Carlton Abama has wisely not forgotten its adult guests, with dedicated villas and swimming pools strictly for adults only, so it's reassuringly easy to escape the little tots. The rooms and suites are spread between the Citadel with its Club Floor and the Villas with Butler service. They are spacious, sleek, modern and well-equipped, with helpful extras like a Nespresso coffee machine and iPhone docking station.
This is an imposing and seamless resort that packs a serious punch. Its beautifully manicured grounds, peppered with palm and banana trees and lush tropical plants, combine with stylish, bright and breezy interior design. With delicious food at the eight restaurants, spanning most genres and flavours from around the world; from beachside terraces specialising in seafood, to the Japanese-meets-Mediterranean fusion Michelin starred Kabuki, and everything in between - there is a most-welcome choice at every meal. While the silky golden sand and warm waters of Abama beach is somewhat irresistible, you might want to steal yourself away for a game of tennis, a round of golf or perhaps some down time - take a dip in one of the many pools or enjoy a rejuvenating treatment in the renowned spa.
