The island is idyllic and very nice both for divers and non divers. The villas are very pretty and if you get one on the beach you basically have a private beach to yourself. I don't agree with comments that the island is dirty but as they are old maybe the management have started working on it. Food is nice and service very friendly. The overall atmosphere is very laid back and there is no pretence to be an exclusive resort which makes it very pleasant for guests who like us do not like wearing evening attire at the beach restaurant... The only "problem" if it can be so called is that the island is virtually disconnected from the world. There is no TV anywhere, bad wireless and little cell phone coverage. We thought this was fantastic but keep it in mind if you plan to work from there. There is an issue of having to pay 2.5% extra if you pay by credit card. This is not standard practice in Malaysia but we did find it in some places in Borneo. Also they want all the money before you leave for the island. We didn't dive but went on a snorkelling trip which was great.
