If you are reading this review you have probably also read the previous reviews outlining the good and the bad. There's a magic that weaves itself around you the longer you stay on this island. Yes, there are insects (the flies were really bad this January), dated room decor, small scratchy towels, slow Internet, no night life, and noisy air-con... More

I, too, feel compelled to review Bokissa Island after reading the laughable review, 'worst island resort etc'. My partner and I are going back to this beautiful island for the fourth time in March and can't wait. Bokissa resort is exactly what it claims to be. Comfortable, clean fares situated within a few metres of the beach, huge swimming pool,... More

After reading the negative review regarding “The worst island Resort” I felt compelled to give my thoughts on Bokissa having been there several times. My husband and I were holidaying on Bokissa at the same time as these guests and witnessed the “quite vocal” outburst from this couple. I must defend the owner Alan, who kept his cool while this...

Had two wonderful weeks and had the best time. I dived 8 amazing dives - my favourite the Henry Bernard and night dive. Absolutely amazing! Saw three dugongs - two I spotted by myself. Our fare had two loungers - I enjoyed reading, sleeping and just enjoying the sounds of the waves. Lol felt soooo good. The rooms were great... More

We spent 4 nights at Bokissa in January, which seemed the perfect length. The island is beautiful, the food was good, and it was very relaxing. We were there when there were high winds, and it was hard to snorkel from shore, and you couldn't do much kayaking. However, they set up a drift snorkel, taking us around the island... More

Wow. What an amazing place! We were recently lucky enough to visit Bokissa and spent 7 nights there. This is the perfect place to unwind and get away from it all - no TV/limited wifi, and only a few other guests to share paradise with. You really have no choice but to relax. The trip from the airport to the... More
