I chose this hotel rather than the SLH hotel on the same island (which I always picked SLH hotels) was because my sis wants to experience water villas. I booked on hotel website and the price was not cheap. Lagoon villa is the entry level and we booked the Mangrove villa, the next level up. But upon check-in, with the price we were paying, Mangrove villa is outdated and way below our expectation. To fully experience the resort or water-villa to be precise, we have requested upgrade to Ocean Villa and Ocean villa is fantastic. The stay includes private breakfast on balcony and food was delivered by boat and it was a nice experience. In general, the food is good at the property. We also did Bamboo Journey at Solace Spa, pricy and nothing really different. Though snorkelling at South China Sea right from the Ocean Villa, mangrove kayaking can make our stay memorable.
