Ava/toga restaurant is very romantic as it is on the pier, where you overlook the endless lagoon, and beautiful sunsets. The food is very moorish, well presented, first class. My... More

This is a very picturesque resort set right on the beach. We had a garden view room one back from the beach and lovely view. The fale wasn't huge but nicely adequate with unusual shower/bathroom outside. There is a stunning freshwater pool in beautiful surroundings and handy Harry's Bar. The staff are really helpful and friendly but the food is... More

We did not stay at this resort, but stopped here for a meal and it was fantastic. Probably one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had! So fresh. Gorgeous setting for the restaurant as we sat watching the sun set. Totally idyllic. The resort looked a great place to stay.
