The Reef is pretty well defined as a tranquil and relaxed beach resort. However, one area where we seem to get some complaints is that we don’t have sufficient shade on the beach itself. Yes, every suite is beachfront (and in the shade much of the day), and yes we have lots of palm trees dotted around the place, but I guess these days people are more and more conscious of excess sun exposure, yet love the feeling of lying out on the beach enjoying the sounds of the ocean lapping on the beach and the cool breeze.
So… we’ve just finished installing 12 permanent palapas on the beach in front of and around our beach bar. Each of these will provide shade for two beach lounge chairs, and also be in convenient range of a cool drink from the bar.
As was once seen on a thank you note in a hotel in the Phillipines (and I kid you not)… “tenjewberrymuj”
