This is the place to go if you want to truly relax and be surrounded by beauty, excellent service and amazing food. My husband and I tried to choose a place where we would not have to deal with families with small children running around which is virtually impossible to do and so we just hoped at the beginning of December we would be lucky. But, even with families resident we were able to find a place on the island where we were not disturbed by anything. Our water villa was rustic and very spacious with out door and indoor living areas. I was very pleased we had number 34 as we were not overlooked by any other villa which is the case if you are staying in the ones that run side by side. One of my favorite aspects of the trip was that you were given bicycles to ride around the island on, I loved cycling to breakfast and lunch. There is plenty to do if you like water sports and the spa is amazing. I had a wonderful yoga instructor too, the best yoga class I have ever had! The staff are super friendly and our man Friday, Shifaz was always there when we needed anything. I highly recommend this resort if what you are after is some peace and beauty.
