Perfect for couples who want some luxury by the sea but not a generic beach resort experience, Warapura has a youthful, understated style.
With whitewashed walls and turquoise trim, rooms are in a sort of Greco-Roman-meets-Thai-ocean-chic design that works really well. Along with all of the creature comforts like TV and air-con, the bright, airy and spotless seaside villa we checked out had a comfy queen size bed, polished concrete floor, large modern bathroom and -- the best part -- wall-size windows and a wood platform perched on rocks no more than two metres from the sea. For a bit less cash, the cheerful young receptionist offered larger villas set back from the sea with white sofas and living area. Other villas are clustered around a small swimming pool. A funky little bar and restaurant has a pool table to go with a "life-size" chess board on which a big group of friends could slowly battle it out while having cocktails delivered mid-game. Who wants to be the queen?
