Swimming pool area also very good! Wonderful beach villas and very nice staff!!! I recommend the excursion Private Island Picnic. And also other activities are... More

Everything was excellent. The service, the staff, the island, the location, everything was perfect. The hotel staff always friendlly and nice. We enjoyed very much our honeymoon The first day we arrive, we took a bath on the beach in front our hut during the sunset... No words to describe, unbelivable. Snorkelling and canoeing around the island allowed us to... More

We were visiting on our honeymoon and had a beach villa (177) allocated to us on the quieter rear end of the island by the Raabondhi restaurant. For the 8 nights... More

This resort does everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Friendly personal, nice rooms with a lot of space, good AC, and very various food at the buffets. Two times a day they want to clean your room and bring you clean towels. Some rooms (tiny beach houses) are situated better as others. We had room 143 wich... More

A real nice resort. Clean and sufficient rooms. Very good evening buffe with a great variety of food. Very good lunch at the main bar close to the reception. Food generally of very high standard, but the coffee was not good. Horrible nes cafe, very strange considering the standard on all other food and drinking items. Very nice and service... More

It is clear what the royal island resort is after, and it is not client satisfaction or making the guests happy: it is your money. As of the moment you step on the island you have the feeling that anything you touch will cost you and is utterly overpriced. Internet in your room at $10 per day and not even... More

Luckily we had a few days of good weather which completed the view of paradise on earth. We were told that the best period is between December and February. The trip to the resort from... More
