Main restaurant had burned down, rubble piled up after months next to pool. 2. Sunset bar was turned into restaurant, served only Asian food (only Chinese until... More

The photos seem impressive, but the resort turned out to be a disappointment. The rooms and overall hotel areas are poorly maintained and dirty. Steps to the spa are broken making it dangerous to walk, the food served in the one and only restaurant is limited and not appetising. The room has a musky smell and the furniture are old... More

We stayed here during Oct 2014. This is only resort on this island. This resort has all the amenities, huge cottages, deers, peacocks etc. However, resort is not well maintained. You can find pilled out wallpapers in cottages, cobwebs on the lamps of restaurants... Also this resort doesn't serve alcohol. So you may want to carry alcohol to the island... More

I imagined lots of water sports, massages and lying by the pool drinking cocktails..... Well .... No cocktails ... No alcohol at all! No water sports apart from a few kayaks ... Everything is...

This place is worth a visit especially if you like somewhere quiet, don't want too many people around on the beach and if you have young children. The concept is fantastic where there are animals such as deers, turkeys, cockerels and little goats roaming around freely. They are very friendly too. Water is very clear and the sea is calm....

When we reached the island, we were pretty amazed by the hotel and its surroundings. There were animals roaming around (eg: deers, peacocks, turkeys), and the lawn was perfectly trimmed. But since the hotel is the only resort on this particular island, it was a very quiet experience for us. No other restaurants/ shops on the island except the hotel's.... More
