My wife and I visited Indigo Bay for 6 nights as part of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. The room was beautiful with a huge bath, outdoor shower (an indoor option as well), very comfortable super king size bed and well, everything you need and more. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool sampling the bar's different cocktails but there was also plenty of activities for when we wanted to be a bit more active. We particularly enjoyed the sunset dhow cruise (booze and chatter with other couples) and the paradise island day trip - I was fascinated by the tour of the derelict hotel there and I probably took more photos there than on the rest of our honeymoon! Snorkelling was also good fun - an awful lot of beautiful fish. We spent a lot of time (and money!) up at the spa and very much enjoyed a small sample of the vast range of treatments available. The meals were excellent, although I would have preferred a few more a la carte services rather than buffet and some variety at breakfast but still, a very good standard. Finally the service was exemplary throughout - no-one could ever do enough for us.

A once in a lifetime experience as part of our once in a lifetime honeymoon. Highly recommended to any other couples planning their special trip.

This has to be one of the best Hotels we have ever stayed at. Staff & facilities were top notch. It seems at this time of year it is not fully booked. Yes, we have experienced some rain but unless you want searing temperatures, many Mosquitos & many people then go for this time of year after your Safari. The all inclusive package includes many drinks (alcoholic) branded, variations on top quality food. The size of the Crayfish stunning soars the prawns & the beef. The staff could not be more helpful. At this time of year the ratio to guests & staff is roughly 7 to 1 ! The spa is brilliant & the out door activities whether on land or water were amazing, even horse riding was enjoyable! A real gem of a hotel & island. A likely return beckons 5 out of 5

Room Tip: Two bedroom room has wonderful views & a jacuzzi

I am not a big fan of big resorts - so Indigo Bay was a real delight as its small enough to feel personal and big enough to find spaces to be alone. Beautiful beyond words, cleverly laid out with incredible staff who always know what you are doing for the day - its an example of great management and a perfect location. You feel asif you have landed in a postcard of palms and warm blue ocean, and with your feet in the sand, you dine on prawns and crayfish with the lap of the ocean. Its ideal for honeymooners and kids- and not many resorts can say that! A highlight of our 3 week Moz experience and one we are already saving up to do again!

Room Tip: I love the casitas down on the beach rather than the villas high up on the hill.

Absolutely perfect accommodation in a private beach bungalow hidden back from the beach to give just the right amount of privacy, beautifully appointed and fitted throughout. Great touches like indoor and outside showers, excellent house-keeping. Great food. Restaurant settings superb over-looking the most perfect bay.
We went snorkelling and horse riding along the near deserted beach at sunset.
This must be paradise

We were here on our honeymoon back in Dec12, as our first choice lodge (Marlin Lodge) had caught fire just 1 week before our departure. The staff are great here, although given the size of the lodge it can feel very hectic at times....especially with lots of young children around.

For families this place is great, but for couples looking for some serious down time I think there are better places. The food is of decent standard, and can also get quite repetitive after a few days.

For the money you pay i'd say this is decent, but there are area that could be improved - eg. couples only dining areas, a more expansive menu/variation.

Room Tip: Try not to stay too far from the main lodge areas, as it can be quite a walk
