My husband and I went to Sau Bay for a rest and we certainly got it. What a beautiful place. What beautiful people. Everything was lovely, always clean and the staff were always welcoming and happy. I would recommend this place to anyone who wanted a restful getaway. However, there were still plenty of activities to participate in. Snorkelling or... More
