He went on to say, “Our two islands – Play and Chill – are unique in that they contain a plethora of picturesque settings, from the billowing sails of Edge set out half a kilometre to sea, to Subsix six metres below the waves, to the stunning standalone Crescent villas with uninterrupted ocean views”.
