We had a fantastic stay at Talima - it was only for one night but it was an amazing place to be. You have to get a boat there so it really does feel like your own personal piece of paradise. There is everything you would want on an island, including snorkelling and diving (which we were told were very... More

What a beautiful place to visit. Gorgeous rooms, food and staff. If you're into snorkelling then the sea life is so pretty to see! A diving centre is located just next door so you can do day and night dives too. The staff were amazing, so helpful and polite. Ready to help when ever you needed! We loved it here... More

Lovely quite place to relax by the sea with a pool & restaurant. The view is amazing & service is 1st class. It has a dive centre next door with a fish sanctuary right out the front. What an amazing place to relax with no noise & distractions from the outside world.

Staff were very friendly and supportive. We enjoyed going snorkeling everyday for 7days. Snorkeling spot is right in front of the resort you can walk/swim there. No much around the resort but if you want to enjoy snorkeling and relaxing time, I definitely recommend this place.

What a beautiful local resort. This is a place to go to if you want to sit back and relax and observe nature. The trip there was very exhaustive, Taxi from airport to Ferry Terminal, Pier to Resort (Bring lots of Change for Usage Fees) But well worth it to relax seaside. The drinks were watered down and not strong... More
