My husband and i went to the resort on our honeymoon and everything was amazing. The ambiance and facilities certainly made our trip a perfect getaway. We were on full board basis and the food was satisfying. There are a lot of activities on the beach and the beach bar is very nice.

The set up is perfect, as well as the service. The ultimate destination for unforgettable holidays. If you go,do book a beach villa, so as to have your privé beach. Prices are inevitably high, but paradise costs!!!

This resort is very nice. The staff are friendly and efficient. The room is good, but I think the private pool is a little small. There is no public swimming pool. The coral reefs around the island are amazing. So it's a very good place for snorkelling. You can see a lot of beautiful fishes and sharks just from the...
