I came to kohlipe with a few friends and stayed in mountain resort for the 1st 2 nights. Another friend and i decided to extend our stay to do some diving in the island so we sent a couple of e-mails to a few dive centres to enquire about the price, accomodation, etc. I had my eyes on a few...

The Forra resort also did scuba diving and on the day that you dive, you get 25% off the accommodation, which was great! Many many thanks to Adriana who helped us so much with the accommodation and booking our dives. The... More
