By any measure, an amazing place. The island itself is small, making you feel like it's your own personal island - you can literally walk around it in 10 minutes. Despite its size, it exudes privacy all the way. You never feel that you are bumping into too many people. The villas are spacious and excellent, with practically every creature comfort you need accounted for. Extra points for the huge toilet with tub and the lovely outdoor shower area. And of course, nothing beats having the sea as your viewing deck.
The food while expensive was consistently great. I particularly enjoyed a grilled whole lobster for dinner and a flavorful chicken curry for lunch. The breakfast juices we're also a highlight.
You come to these sorts of places for the natural attractions. Happy to report that the island delivers in a big way. Amazing colors in the water, sandbars, great sand and fantastic views and sunsets.
Overall, this has to be one of my best experiences ever. Will definitely be back for more.
