East meets West as we travel to Ambre Hotel...

We crossed the island (thanks to SummerTimes) west to east.
It rained in the middle...

Traffic laws are STRICTLY enforced.
South Africa could learn a thing or two from this country.

I remembered this from my last, somewhat fleeting, visit here in 2013

Part of the reception area.

Looking more like an art gallery exhibit than a chair in our room.

We LOVE our beach facing accommodation.

This is the view from one of the windows

Another view of our room

My favourite piece of furniture.
It might look like a retro fridge,
but it actually is a cupboard that conceals the mini bar.
All of the contents are FREE!

You can entertain friends in this shower...
No bath, and the toilet is separate...
which is a much better idea than incorporating it into the main bathroom

The decals on my suitcase are starting to get a bit travel weary

You can relax in the pool and look out over the ocean

Or you can relax in the welcoming reception area.

Lunch time...
At La Dolce Vita

Yes, you can have carbs while on holiday!

I really like this table design.
Pity I cannot fit it into my suitcase

Part of the stunning beach vista.
The hotel boasts 800m of beachfront for its guests

The patio outside the Coral Bar

Beanbags on the beach

Time for a cup of tea and a slice of cake?
