The place is ideal when you are looking for a retreat from busy city life. It is a small island with three resorts on it only. All situated on a middle size line of beach with Tenggol Coral Beach Resort being clearly the best option as hotel.
The island is covered with jungles and full of beautiful butterflies and parrots. In front of the hotel is a very comfortable lagoon for swimming and snorkeling. The water is clear, blue and warm.
The main value comes around the island. The fact is that there are around 30 diving sites within 10 minute boat trip from the resort in every direction of it. Such a density of high quality sites makes it a perfect destination to dive-lovers of various level. The waters are full of creatures and amazing nature underneath.
The resort is having professional dive center with excellent dive masters and several boats to carry the groups to sites.
The food is also pretty good considered the outlying location.
No 3G, no Internet, no TV is rather an advantage for a peaceful retreat in pleasureful natural surrounding.
What could be improved is:
- fix heaters in bathrooms so that the water is not so hot
- mark the snorkeling area more clear, since a little be cautious sometimes because of the boats
- fix at least one jungle tracking route
