We stayed in an over water bungalow 804 in May for 8 nights to celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary. The over water bungalow was fantastic, very clean and spacious. We had our own private deck area with access to the lagoon where we saw black tipped reef sharks and a beautiful variety of fish. We snorkelled from our deck area...

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The room was spacious, the beach is spot clean and we can even swim with the sharks and fish. What I like the best about this place is the friendly employees. They interacted with us and tried to solve our problems well. The buffet was diversified, mainly in Western and Mid Asian cuisine. My parents...

The title should say it all. They were troublesome with booking, they were troublesome with changes, they intentionally hid information. NEVER go there. Never ever...ever ever. Go to any other place and the treatment is much better and no deceptive marketing!
