what a find this hotel/resort is.
Arriving by boat itself was an experience. Staff greet you almost before your feet hit the beach. a soft drink/cold towel and warm welcome with good introductions happened immediately and check in is done there and then . We had a ground floor room which suited us perfectly. spotlessly clean, everything provided, good airconditioning and nothing to disturb you.
the hotel organises various activities and we went on the sunset cruise. The sunsets certainly are absolutely amazing on a daily basis and can be viewed perfectly from the bar on the beach. the sunset cruise was a good way of socialising and the hotel manager was on board and was generally excellent at looking after all his guests at all times.
The swimming pool is 25 metres long which is a real treat to find at any time/place. and the pool temperature was perfect. There are plenty of pool loungers with umbrellas and staff on hand with towels/drinks/help.
The breakfast buffet was superb with a wide array of goodies to tempt the appetite. Each evening there is a different theme, although the a la carte menu is also always available.
We had to drag ourselves away as this is a place for total rest and relaxation.
