The Thumbs-Up : Eco-Lux Resort Concept, Location, Spa, Pool & Beach Lounging. We still love the well designed, integrated and low-rise whitewashed villas built on eco-friendly concept. The location of the remote island certainly supports the concept, and helps keeping it isolated from the typical "noise & pollutants" of the main island. We enjoyed our relaxing time and superb services... More
