We stayed 1 week at Bokissa a couple of weeks ago. We were lucky enough to have the whole resort (and the island!) to ourselves for a few nights and it was just wonderful. The rooms are comfortable and had everything we needed. Snorkelling straight off the beach is fantastic, very enjoyable and a whole variety of fish and coral... More

Just returned from our second visit to Bokissa. We love this place. Many more trips planned in the future. So relaxing and the best snorkeling we have encountered (and we've been alot of places).

My husband and I spent 4 nights on Bokissa island in May. It still makes us smile just thinking about it. We were greeted at the jetty by friendly staff with leis and refreshing, cold coconut milk. Check-in was a breeze. Our fare (bungalow) was close to the waters edge and we could hear the gentle lapping ocean at night.... More

This is an idyllic small tropical island paradise. Privately owned & run it is a quiet retreat with natural beauty in all directions. The Fares are comfortable & private, some only metres from the sandy beach, others closer to the tropical garden/ natural bush.
