This place is unbelievable value for money! Shakil and his crew really provide you with an amazing carefree experience in a tropical paradise - perfect for a 3 day getaway! The island itself is just what you imagine a private island to look like. White beach surrounded by mangroves, with a traditionally roofed hut with an upper deck with really comfortable lounge furniture, perfect for reading and relaxing. The place also has very nice bathrooms with great attention to detail (notice the sinks made of giant shells!) I loved the fact that we were staying in tents, because it allows you to fall asleep to the sound of the sea. They are spacious and have beds in them as well. The food is great and with a little luck you will catch some fresh fish for lunch. For me the Kayaking was a nice add-on to an already great experience. Shakil has a PhD in marine biology and paddling through the mangrove forests with him is not only extremely peaceful but also very informative so it really takes your mind off other things. A highlight of the trip was definitely swimming off a small sand-bar, which you will share with a handful of guests of a local 5 star resort. On the last morning Shakil took us for an early morning water safari on a river to see some crocodiles and birdlife and you really couldn't ask for a better guide on such a trip or a better host generally. In sum, can't wait to go back!
