Having read all the reviews of Ninamu before booking, I seriously doubted if it could actually be as good as it sounded; overwhelmingly good reviews are often a recipe for disappointment. But unbelievably, it was even better than I could have imagined (and I can imagine a lot!!). Quite honestly it was the best holiday we have ever had.
My husband and I stayed at Ninamu for 14 nights and within a day or two we were already contemplating quitting our jobs and staying there indefinitely. The bungalows are incredible works of art, the fresh food plate-lickingly delicious and the surroundings beyond picturesque. But what truly makes this place completely unique is the people. Chris is absolutely tireless in catering to everyone's needs, going above and beyond to ensure that every guest gets to have the experience of a lifetime. Whatever you’ve dreamed of doing, he does his utmost to make it a reality. Greta, Christiane and all the staff are incredibly warm and friendly and really go the extra mile to make you feel special. The whole place as an aura of fun, relaxation and enjoyment about it and you soon feel more like you are hanging out with friends than staying at a resort. It was so good we have already begun planning our return next year!
My only 'criticism' of Ninamu is that it has set the bar so high that it has probably tarnished every other place we will stay at in future which will now be compared to its excellence.
