Absolutely stunning location right on the beach, perfectly hidden away from the outside world. The staff were so attentive,friendly and accomodating. I was in heaven. I highly recommend this resort. Well worth the 18hour flight from Australia!! Would return in a heartbeat.

We will most definitely be back. We had a lovely stay and all members of staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We enjoyed snorkelling, just thinking of it make me want to go back.

Secluded beach with safe swimming area. As a single lady, I felt safe on the beach at all times. Massive swimming pool with comfortable loungers, even if the entire hotel was at the pool it didn't get crowded. A picture perfect hotel with an awesome view of the bay. Lovely restaurants x 2. Rooms were absolutely beautiful, comfortable and peaceful.... More
