The perfect spot for a sundowner, The Verandah Lounge is not only impressive in the ambiance department but also on inventory of your favourite tipple. Wines here are aplenty and this is probably the only place on the island where you will find a wide selection of gin to tickle your taste buds. The cozy, colonial lounge – with a cigar and wine room to boot – also plays host to live nightly performances.
