This resort brings every island dream into a reality. After arriving by speedboat in drizzly rain, we were welcomed into The Club - an upgrade which was great but for us probably not worth the extra cash as the resort was not too busy- would definitely be worth it if it were peak time, eg European summer. Quick check in... More

Probably the best hotel staff I've ever had in my life! Everyone in the hotel staff treats you well, the hotel service was perfect, and the place is simply amazing! The only advice I can give is that I had to make reservations for all the restaurants with at least 2 days of advance. The italian was good, but the... More

Direct access to the reef was great. Hammock bed , day beds and chairs and table on the outdoor area were excellent. Whilst we didn't use the enormous spa... More

We don't usually review but this place is incredible. Slightly larger than some other islands but has so much to see and do. You get a large number of free excursions as part of the package and the service is amazing! There are extra things to do which you have to pay for and these are expensive but worth it!... More
