The Three Monkeys Kid’s Club is the resort’s dedicated haven for energetic kids. With a daily changing activity schedule, parents can rest assured that their little ones are happily occupied while they take a dip in the clifftop Jacuzzi or sip a cocktail or two at the resort’s Beach Club. The latter is a surfkissed venue accessible via a hill tram that traverses 85m off the face of the cliff. Alternatively, enjoy a quiet beach walk or signature spa treatments at the Cliff Spa or the Beach Spa.
