We had an awesome experience. The villa's were large and very comfortable. The service was outstanding - we felt very well taken care of. Michelin-Level food - and a lot of it! The entire staff was friendly and had great personality. The location is phenomenal, beautiful pool and access to an outstanding white sand beach. First rate scuba diving.

The Palms is a calm and beautiful place with access to a gorgeous beach. Each villa has their private jacuzzi and it is the perfect place if you need to relax. The villa was splendid and huge, the food, delicious and the staff is absolutely perfect. An unforgettable moment, thank you!

We spent four nights at this secluded paradise on a special (4 nights for price of 3). The location is ideal for rest and relaxation with no kids. We needed this after 1 1/2 months traveling through Asia. With only 6 cabins each with a private cabana, you are well-attended to by the staff; they could not be more helpful...
