We took a helicopter north towards the BodyHoliday at the beginning of our honeymoon in early June.
Positives - fun experience, avoids the long taxi/bus ride to the northern island hotels, get to see a different view of the island, get some good aerial photos, get to tell friends you were a high-roller and rode in a helicopter
Negatives - place on helicopter completely dependent on first come first serve. We had confirmed reservations for over 2 months, but had to wait to get on the third helicopter because of where we sat on the plane (the middle seats on the plane are the last to get off).
Expensive- especially when you factor in dollars/minute in air
Not adventageous on return trip - your luggage travels by van so you would be waiting at airport for a while before you could check in
You still have to take a taxi to your resort from the northern airport - at least it is much shorter, but it is still an added expense
At roughly 3 times the cost of even a private taxi, this can be seen as a bit of an extravagance, but it is worth it to get to the beach faster and without the car sickness that some people get on the long and winding trip to the northern resorts
