We arrived in heaven at nihiwatu - the location, the people and the energy found at this idyllic location made for a unique and fantastic honeymoon!
As we are both surfers landing into a resort with a world class wave at our front door was always destined for success, however, surfing aside the experience at the resort was incredible - friendly staff, amazingly delicious food using locally grown vegetables and freshly caught fish, and unique experiences including a brilliantly day-trip on a boat where the two of us went diving amongst beautiful corals and brightly colored fish on great pinnacles coming up deep from the ocean bed after which we enjoyed a bottle of wine and a beautifully prepared BBQ banquet on a pristine white beach with brilliant blue ocean.
We also had a spa treatment which was heavenly, were able to release baby turtles into the ocean and were totally spoilt by the owners and GM George who assisted in making our honeymoon the best week of both of our lives!
Now we have left but are totally surfed out with smiles from ear to ear! Thanks especially to the watermen staff Christian, Dan and Ben who made our time in (and out of) the water even more enjoyable!
We can not wait to return again!
