We went there for a couple days to enjoy the ocean and that is exactly what we got!
Although small and nothing much on the island, they have excellent things to do... you can go hiking to the waterfalls, snorkling is beautiful (you can get to see so many things it's amazing... my 4 year old son learn to snorkle while there because he was so intrigued by the underwater creatures), fishing, feeding the fishes and offcourse, go on Amanikan.
There is a boarding fee per person which includes all your food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) because keep in mind that you are in a secluded place and there's no other restaurant except the one in the hotel. The french toast with moyo honey is amazing... and don't forget to taste the honey comb ice cream (I can still taste it now while writing this).
The service, like most Aman, is impeccable. The staff at the dock was really nice.... he taught my nanny to swim!! They were accommodating... every time my son wanted to feed the fishes around the dock, they would run and get the food for the fishes. They clean all your snorkling gears and store them for you so that when you are ready for another round, they're all clean and ready to use.
The waterfall was also an amazing experience. It's clean and a fun drive in an old safari car where it will drop you off so that you don't have to hike the whole way.
Getting there is a bit of a hassle but after getting there, you might not want to leave --until you get bored that is because really, there's only so much quietness you can absorb.
