A beautiful resort set in a pristine, tropical island paradise. The villas are beautifully yet simply appointed, with everything a holiday-maker requires, including beach/pool towels and beach bags for carrying snorkelling gear, coffee/tea-making facilities, a choice of aromas for bathroom products, bedroom slippers and flip-flops, aromatherapy burner, etc. The staff were friendly, helpful, and mostly conversant in English. The food... More
