    3 Work beach-to-bar locks

    ‘I made the most of the salty sea air, twisting and pinning my hair into two buns (one behind each ear) a couple of hours before dinner to create gorgeous waves,’ says make-up artist Lisa Valencia.

You’ll spend your time blissfully exploring the beautiful lagoons, beaches and gardens, and enjoying the delicious food on offer at the Iru Restaurant. If that doesn’t sound relaxing enough, you can also kick back in a beach-front villa and spend time getting pampered at the on-site spa.
