Staying at a treehouse was very good & privacy was mostly ensured. Sunset deck at the next villa was viewing our swimming pool. Our own sunset deck was visible from the path in front of our villa. Access to villa grounds is very easy for any snooping person.

Dear Guest Greatly appreciate your candid review. The Treehouse villa is by far more unique, by being 3 M off the ground, it offers dramatic panoramic and clear views of the Indian Ocean. We take privacy very seriously here and as a matter of fact we are able to provide exclusive privacy and seclusion as the 130+ villas are nicely... More

Little bit expensive, but it's worth it. Amazing resort, facilities, staff, and island. The beach is similar to those you see in magazines, white sands, blue clear water, and coconut trees. The staff are very friendly, and the food is great (reallllly great). We took the villa with pool, it gave us utmost privacy. The whole experience was flawless. Two... More

A truly superb, relaxing resort. I have to say that everything about this resort, staff, food, villas etc. are exceptional. The water villas where you have the choice of swimming and snorkeling near to the villa if you really want privacy. Amazing choice of restaurants with excellent food. Being a big foodie I was dubious about the food as everything... More
