Arrived by fast speed boat, 10mins from airport. Great welcome, with glass cold real lemonade & a hot towel to freshen up Smooth book in, luggage taken to room, which was cool, large and huge comfortable bed. Serviced every day The whole island was lovely, easy to walk around, all sand, no need for shoes just flip flops. One main restaurant serving fabulous delicious food, loads choices, we were fully inclusive, incl local drinks. The staff were amazing, so friendly & polite. It was Ramadan during our stay, but but they all did everything they could to make our stay perfect Two other bars,one serving food. Lots of water sports, trips out, spa & gym. No swimming pool though, even though it says there is, but don't need one, the beach all round island was white sands, blue sea with lots corals to explore, palm trees & coconuts, so beautiful. All round a perfect place to stay

Beautiful island, friendly staff with a lovely clean white powered sandy beach. The restaurants are very good and well run. Bluu bar has nightly entertainment and nothing is to much trouble for them. The trips and watersports team are helpful and patient. Well worth a visit.

Excellent experience! We stayed at a Beach Villa w Pool, a beautiful setting featuring outdoor bath and shower, breezy crystal clear ocean waters, clean interrior...very much enjoyable! The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful, especially Inthi the #1 guy 💙...my entire family loves Inthi, the BEST hotel person we have ever met! He's absolutely all about the customer! Hope Inthi becomes a Manager ine day! The restaurant and its personnel were excellent as well! We loved Thihthi and Deepak who made deliciosly tasty flat bread! The staff was amazing, great cooks and food selection! We'll be back again!

I really-really liked the place. We enjoyed a stay at villa which has a very comfortable bed, clean and new bathroom facilities, puffy and clean towels. The room is new and very clean. You can get a good quality sleep hearing the ocean at night. Very nice food variety, very delicious, many options available for those who are on clean eating like me or those who want to try something special. Don't miss out authentic cheese nan which is so tasty. You can see how they care about the guests, as they everyday we only had a very sweet watermelon and the sweetest and ripe papaya. Other options are available too, but this was the sweetest papaya I tried. The staff is very hospitable and smiling warmly. All of the staff are wearing masks. The free WiFi is provided and the air-conditioning system is working well. Most of all I liked the nature with tall trees, white sand, warm and beautiful water. The administration is very attentive. Chef is very skilled. I liked this place very much and strongly recommend it

This holiday was perfection. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire experience. I will comment on each aspect below: The Cost - I had to start with this... the value for money is ridiculously good especially if you go all inclusive! The other 4* and above options around our budget were £1000-1500+ more than this. We cannot believe we got such a bargain and it was worth every single penny we spent. Airport Transfer - Really quick and easy. We were greeted by a lovely lady at the airport and the speedboat then took us the quick 15 minute ride over to the island. The Welcome - We got a lovely welcome with a fresh drink and cold head towels whilst we were given our room keys and documentation and the luggage was taken to our rooms. The Room - We had one of the beach room deluxe rooms and it was great. Nice and spacious, a huge comfortable bed and good air con. It was very clean and tidy and had an amazing view of the palm trees with the beach. The cleaners did an excellent job every day which was needed with the sand you inevitably drag in from the beach! I would not go for a garden room as you miss the views so if you can stretch your budget that little bit more for a beach view room then you will not be disappointed. The Beach - Beautiful perfection. Enough sun beds are put out for everyone but it does not clutter anything up. The beach is right by the bar so you do not need to go far! The Gym - It is a small gym but just what I needed and with an amazing view of the beach and sea. My advice is to book your gym slots for the whole holiday when you get there as the availability was limited. All Inclusive - I would 100000% recommend the All Inclusive option. Yes, not every drink and cocktail is included but the range you do get is absolutely fine and it will save you money over the course of the holiday. We treated ourselves on the last day to a cocktail in a coconut but that was the only time we strayed away from the all inclusive drinks. The Food - Really great. Breakfast is mostly the same each day but with lunch and dinner they really mix it up so you do not have the same things all the time. The food is good quality and big reason why I almost put a stone on in a week! The restaurant is also lovely and with amazing views. Massage - We got a 20% off voucher and had the Swedish massage. It was worth every penny. Water Sports - The one hour of free non-motorised water sports is an amazing addition to the all inclusive. We went paddle boarding and kayaking a couple of times which was great. I also paid for the jet ski which is expensive but it is great fun (until you lose your sunglasses, oooops) and we both went on the Dolphin sunset cruise which again was worth every penny. We saw in excess of 40 dolphins swimming around in pods for about an hour. Awesome! You also get a 20% voucher for the motorised water sports with all inclusive. Dinner on the Beach - Yes it is costly but if you have the budget I would highly recommend having dinner in a teepee on the beach. It was just a surreal and amazing experience. The Staff - last but by no means least... The staff we excellent. They were exceptionally friendly and attentive at all times. I do not have a bad word to say about any of them. They have to work long hours and really hard for the guests but they are all so great. It is such a shame they still have to wear masks, I wish they did not have to do that as it must be horrible in the heat. A special mention to the guys in the bar: Supun, Prasanna, Chandan, Mikee, Ushaan and the also Zalil in the restaurant that also served us at our dinner on the beach. If you read this, you guys were amazing and helped make our experience even better. In conclusion this holiday was epic and an absolute dream. If you choose to go here you will not be disappointed.
