REALLY lovely staff, really good food, beautifully maintained grounds.
Good diving centre and snorkelling.
Nice big rooms.
That said I don't think I can give a full 5 stars. Whilst everything was great there wasn't much of a wow factor, considering the price tag. I know you have to pay extra to be on an island. But it is a bit too expensive given that the rooms weren't quite up to the mark of the price tag. I am being picky, but I've stayed at other island resorts in Asia that have had more of a wow factor. For instance, we stayed in a beach facing villa. It was great, but it didn't have free water, wifi and crucially the bed was in another smaller room so you couldn't see the sea in the morning or at night.
The resort wasn't crowded at any point during our stay although apparently it was a busy time of year and a LOT of Chinese come here for their new year.
