Everything You Need To Know About Staying With Us.
At Ahau Collection we appreciate that travelling is now a balance of maintaining physical health but also the emotional need to escape. Our collection of hotels is a bespoke mix of spread out stand-alone (barefoot in the sand) luxury bungalows & villas and rooms with open-air and ventilated common areas offering the perfect escape in which to “lose” yourself.
At All Ahau Collection hotels our primary concern is always hygiene, sanitation and safety. Cleanliness of our guest rooms and common areas has always been of key importance to us in which Housekeeping plays a vital role. As we welcome you back into our family our goal is to make you feel secure at all times.

This we do to ensure not only the safety of our guests but also of our staff, a healthy and happy household creates a happy family:
