So in love with the Nespresso coffee machine and the Nespresso pods they generously refill at least twice a day.

Addicted to the Van Houten hot chocolate packets…I am not ashamed to say I snuck them (as well as my remaining unused Nespresso pods!) into my luggage twice a day for my supply back home 🙂

Molton Brown amenities – love the scent (a mix of vanilla and coconut that just soothes and relaxes).

Kurumba provides decent shaving kit for men (I say decent because this is still disposable razor but one that is really cute).

Kurumba_room view sea

Perfect view of the sea and sand from inside our room.  Our little piece of heaven.

Each room (regardless of room category) has assigned outdoor sunbeds with the room number so you’re always assured of having a sunbed to use anytime of the day.

Our room was perfect mainly because the other beachfront bungalows on both sides were a few meters away so it was like having our own private beachfront.and our room was also close to one of the outdoor water gazebos which made it perfect for taking photos of the beautiful sunrise or sunsets everyday.

Stunning Sunrise on the morning of our anniversary
