My family (my parents, wife and son) stayed here the last week of March 2017. We all loved it and left far more relaxed than when we started. It does take a lot of travel to get there. The resort is located on an island off the coast. It is reached by a 45 minutes boat ride (and the dock...

The only thing that could be improved is variety of food, should be more sophisticated. Food was better at our previous trip 3 years ago. Brown bread should be available at breakfast, french baguette would be a plus.

For an island all-inclusive clocking in at around $1000USD per night, this place needs a little work. We were expecting something similar to Cambodia's Song Saa island escape, but were a bit let down. The resort seems to have been PURCHASED by the Anantara marquee...and maybe their management needs to come smooth it out a bit...bring it more in line...
