Everything you would want and more. So over the top it's like a dream. We will never forget our memorable visit. The food was amazing and the service exceptional with many extra touches such as a photographer on the activities who took photos which were given on a jump drive on departure.

The whole experience from beginning to end is pure luxury. The location, the accommodation, the tours and activities, the service and the food is at the highest level. It was an unreal experience and a very romantic trip for my husband and I. One of our favorite moments was getting into waders at the oyster farm! (Pic attached :) )
