Stella Island’s adults only (age 15 and up) resort is tailor-made for couples and honeymooners. Water is the over-arching theme of Stella Island, and it has the feel of an ultra-clean, tropical version of Venice.
Opening as a brand-new resort in 2017, Stella Island’s unique configuration features a concrete lagoon pool snaking its way throughout the resort, with the effect that all its swim up rooms and bungalows are on the water.
Ingenious small islets planted with palms are connected one to another with a boardwalk-style footbridge following the configuration of the lagoon and allowing access for guests to every corner of the resort.. Customers love the spacious, modern rooms which make abundant use of natural materials, the friendly, helpful staff, the abundant use of colored, indirect lighting in the bars and restaurants, and the photogenic beauty of the resort, described as an ‘instagrammer’s paradise.’
Rooms feature the pinnacle of elegance and kinetic space, walk-in showers, some of the best sleeping mattresses on the market, and abundant closet space, in addition to many more amenities such as, in some rooms, Jacuzzis, spa treatments, and luxury services.
