I loved the Resort and especially the great amenities they have. Good large lawns with beautiful trees of coconut, the garden with hundreds of plants and a wonderful view of lake. The swimming pool was excellent and maintained. The sitting places to rest and enjoy was great. But I doubt on the room quality and size. The occasional power cut... More

Quite unlike anywhere I have ever been really. Journey starts by parking the car off the main road in a secure area. We then board a boat which took us to through the backwater lake and we arrive at the wonderfully secluded resort. The views are stunning and the making of this place. We had to get moved from original... More

This location is filled with youth, romance and solitude . Your stay on the island is greeted with the warmest welcome and it just gets better from there. Do not make a mistake of spending only a night or 2, minimum 3 nights - but if your itinerary can manage it, spend at least 5 nights. You will not be... More
