I recently spent 4 nights at Serenity in between Christmas and New Years.
We flew into Ha'apai and Patti the owner was there to pick us up and take us to the island of Uoleva, which was a stunning boat trip from ha'apai mainland.
I've never relaxed so fast in a place before. This was just what I was after.
The remoteness and beauty combine to create an oasis of bliss.
It is a beautiful spot to unwind; swim, snorkel, practise yoga, kayak, walk, sleep, hammock time, eat, talk, read and re-group with your soul!
The snorkeling is awesome, with some beautiful coral patches & so much life.
The fales are very spacious, light & comfortable, very clean and the beds are great. We slept really well each night. Too much infact!
The owners looked after us wonderfully, we were treated to breakfast, lunch, dinner & baking! It is such bliss to be cooked for, for each meal.
A way to my heart was the awesome range of herbal teas that were available to help yourself at no cost.
I found the cost of the meals very reasonable and inline with what we expected.
There are many small touches that Serenity have implemented that you only appreciate once you leave and go somewhere else. Such as filling up your water bottles with drinking water, rather then charging you to buy another bottle.
All of what they have achieved on such a remote island is certainly a great feat.
My only consideration about going back to Serenity would be how to stay as long as possible next time.
Fabulous, highly recommended
