“Stunning.. except ...”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for our honeymoon in october 2012. In a nutshell it was unfaultable.. until.. I stupidly left my door unlocked on the last day and my ipod stolen. The staff upon reports came and helped search the room and then searched the whole island and all the staff rooms. They were fantastic.. but alas it was never found.( I honestly think it was a guest who saw the advantage and took it)
aside the island and hotel were great we went a beach villa. Outside bathroom was a real treat and the room was clraned twice a day. Food was delish in the restaurant and staff very polite. Drinks were yummy (included in package). The front bar hold a party each week and wr had a ball.
Stingray feeding was a really amazing experience and snokelling was really clear.
Bar staff played our wedding song every day for us.
Would totally stay here again and recommend for sure but would lock my door.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

This is an absolutely outstanding property. Great rooms, superb service and surrounded by awesome scenery. Of special note are Carmin, Hussain and Sidhant of F&B while at the Bar is the ROCKSTAR Kannan. What a bunch of guys!

Would love to be back soon.

An idyllic location supported by wonderful food, staff, beach villa and facilities. Highly recommended for a complete getaway and rest..it fulfilled everything we were looking for and more. Would have liked free Wifi at least in the public areas.

Room Tip: We preferred the charm beach villa. The water villas were also lovely but would not have suited us.

WOW!!! Stunningly Beautiful place with attentive service/staff and food fit for a king!! I have NEVER been to such a beautiful place EVER. The rooms were cleaned twice a day and were contemporary in design, peace full and very comfortable. We swam with sharks and exotic fish and feed sting rays. We will return to this Island and will recommend it to any one. Make sure you go all inclusive as it is expensive. Water villas are the best as the private deck is great access to the blue lagoon. Fantastic infinity pool. Go for it you will not regret it !!

What we loved about this island was the beauty, hosplitality and incredibly relaxed atmosphere. Great cocktails in the bar and great service from great staff as well. Everyone who comes into contact with you or passed you says hello and is cheery, whatever their role. Had supper in main restaurant every night and tried the different curries - delicious! The sea is beautiful and full of fish, the rooms are really comfortable; I wouldn't say luxurious but I quite liked their relaxed feel. Plenty of free bottled water daily. Best of all, the sting rays come to shore everyday at 4.30pm and you get to touch and feed them - a unique experience and loads of fun. Transfer by speedboat back to the airport at sunrise topped off a beautiful week.
