We got married end of Dec 2012 and our travel agent insisted that we should come here for our honeymoon. We stayed for 3 nights from 03/01/13 to 06/01/13 and lets just say it felt like we had lived a whole lifetime in a seaside paradise! Everyone from the crew that picked us by speed boat from the airstrip were just lovely and very friendly. The manager, Stella, was with us on the boat ride and during the whole stay made sure that we were always well taken care of. We stayed in banda 10 and saw the sun set each day from our bed!! Bakari the invisible room steward whom you could never tell when he was in your banda but once you leave, you would just come and find the place sparkling with a lovely flower on the bed, David or Daudi as they call him in swahili made every meal time an experience as good as the excellent cuisine that he would serve (compliments to the chef as well!). He would always set up tables in different locations with simple but beautiful flowers always. After dinner Odin would be waiting with his telescope, rich knowledge of the stars and the greek mythology behind each one. He would take you on a breath taking trip of the milky way right in the comfort of the cool evening breeze and the gentle tune of the ocean. These lovely people just made the already beautiful kipungani even more beautiful. We really had a wonderful time. Thank you all!!!
