What a wonderful island. The staff were marvelous and Lyn the manager knew her guests details off by heart. The beach bungalows are definitely the way to go, we loved ours and were in the last two at the end of the lagoon. So quite and tranquil. Early morning you can watch the black tipped sharks swimming and circling in... More

Exotic. We stayed in one of the over-water suites which was very comfortable. Big and comfortable bedroom, big spa-equipped bathroom and a central relaxing/TV area all opening onto a very well designed and equipped deck. It was just lovely having all the windows/doors open and having the tropical breeze blowing through. Nice being able to go swimming/snorkelling from one's own... More

We stopped in a beach bungalow (222), only meters away from the warm, blue water of the still lagoon. The weather was fantastic, too hot some days, so be careful. The staff were brilliantly accommodating,... More

We stayed in a Water Bungalow. Way out on the Eastern Side. The bungalow was tired and in desperate need of overhaul, which was happening to the two bungalows next door to us. Huge walk to almost anywhere. The food was ok. Good selection. We booked through Booking.com and somehow the 'all Inclusive' I had booked became full board. This... More

A lovely 4 day in paradise with a party of 5. We arrived a couple of days before Christmas and headed home on Boxing Day. We were staying in a couple of Over water suites. We were Snorkelling and diving daily and had a wonderful stay. The gala Christmas eve was a great evening.
