My husband and I stayed here for three nights with our children ages 18, 21, and 22 following our andBeyond safari in South Africa. It was all an experience of a lifetime. We wished we could have stayed a bit longer. The food was fabulous. The snorkeling and diving were amazing

This is a wonderful resort. The setting is incredible - the best I have visited anywhere, and the rooms are all beautifully positioned with easy access to the beach, but just set back far enough to give privacy. The service, food and staff were all wonderful, as were the

Beautiful and luxurious beach resort. Rooms and main areas are wonderfully designed. Staff is extremely attentive and friendly. Lots of activities besides just sitting on the beach to choose from, including snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, a "castaway picnic," horseback riding,

This is an incredible resort. All cabanas are located just feet from the Indian Ocean. You arrive by helicopter from Vilanculos airport. The staff greets you and you are escorted to your beautiful cabana. There's a splash pool and a large deck for your private use. The best is

They are private. Each side of the room is well vegetated and in front of the room is sparsely vegetated. People walking the beach can not see into your room from the beach due to a small sand dune then the roof of your swinging bed. The distance from the beach to the rooms varied. The biggest thing to remember is that the island itself is private with few visitors and the resort is highly inclusive. My husband and I walked for hours on the beach without seeing a soul. The staff of the hotel are amazing and do a great job scheduling activities for you. It is one amazing place.

You can definitely hire a dhow by negotiating the price with one of the locals. My husband went out while we were there. He "hand" fished (no rod just weights, line, and hook) and then once the tide went out he spear fished lobster. He brought the lobster in and the chef fixed them for us as part of our dinner that night. Hope this helps.

Yes, works well almost everywhere - can be a bit week in the cabana on the beach. Steven
