While others are looking for paradise, some are already there. That's the line we saw here. Indeed, a paradise, and not a tiny bit less than that.
I chose this hotel because because of its location- predicted that being further down the island means there is less boats moving past, giving you better environment. Also because of the turtle sanctuary (big fan of corporate social responsibility) and the huge glass floor in the overwater bungalow which I took.
To begin with, the transport from airport to hotel was well sorted. Our host at the hotel, Nouella, was fantastic. She was warm, helpful, and informative! If you are there and you need help, definitely recommend that you speak to her.
The food at the restaurant was amazing too! The mahi-mahi steak and the creme brulee are definite must-have. Most of the staffs at the restaurants treat you with lots of love. The only thing you may want to take note is try to avoid peak periods- during one of the dinners, one of the restaurant staffs named Ioteffa made us feel discriminated as young Asians. That was probably due to peak hour rush and the stress, but I definitely think he needs to change his service attitude.
Plenty of leisure activities await you here. There is a sea-sports hut by the beach, a quick walk (or swim) away from your room. There you can get kayak, jet ski, etc. There is also an activity desk where you can get access to many other activities, such as renting your own boat (you'd be the captain- even if you are not already qualified, a tutorial will be given- lots to be done here so explore yourself), shark & ray feeding (do try this. you'd be amazed), scuba diving, etc. There is also a complimentary boat ride that takes you out to the main island few times a day if you wish to explore.
The most important part: the room. Spacious, clean and neat, tastefully decorated, rich linen fabric, oh-so-comfortable bed, walk-in wardrobe... and the list goes on. We loved the room, and had very good sleep. One uber cool feature is the glass floor in overwater bungalows: at night, turn off all of your room lights, and turn on the light under your bungalow. you will see the turquoise-coloured reflection from the sea water illuminating your room. You will also see fishes such as rays hanging out under your bungalow.
Overall, we truly enjoyed ourselves, and left the place with lots of good memories. Definitely will visit again and will recommend it to anyone!
