I think the recent reviews of Paradise Island have been a little unfair. Ok, so perhaps it shouldn't be called 'Paradise' Island, but if beautiful seas, pure white beaches, fine foods, and wonderful people are what you are after then this is the place for you.
The building work on the water bungalows is not finished yet, but this did not spoil anything for us. ok, so we were on the other side of the island so I maybe a little biased - but we didn;t hear any noise at all, or any others complaining.
The bar and restuarants were great, all helped by the wonderful people working very hard there to make your holiday as special as they can. If you are watching your waistline then avoid the cake stand at all costs, as one look is fatal! Also watch the measures you are given in the bar as they get larger throughout the evening - either they like you drunk or are trying to get rid of you!!
The Italian restuarant was wonderful, and very good value for money.
Take some bread for the fish after your evening meal and walk down the jetty. The fish follow you for your bread - its so funny. We were lucky enough to see Reef sharks there in the evening - they're very shy so they wont stay around for long.
Remember to take snorkelling gear with you if you can as its about $15 dollars a day to hire or about $70 to buy in the shop!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imagine an island right in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with bright white beaches, a lagoon with multiple hues of blue and aquamarine and tall coconut palms swaying to the breeze.
