This is a great place to come and do nothing. It's a tiny island with not much on so if you want more action go elsewhere. Would be most suited for honeymooners. That being said I came with an 8 year old and we had a good time because we love to chill. Have to give a shout out to... More

The setting is magnificent. It's hard to imagine how stunning the island is without seeing it. Photos do not do it justice. It's exquisite. What I love about the resort is that is feels like a rustic, simple island resort as opposed to a fancy modern hotel. The villas are beautiful with just enough space. The staff is wonderful. The...

This place is perfect for couples to enjoy the beach, spa services and snorkeling. The only downside for me was the food, there is only one resturant and a limited choices for the menu selections and any new meal would be in the set menu that cost Usd 60. Also there is no place to shop for any snacks in... More
