Wow wow wow! Completely exceeded expectations. The villa on stilts was superb (villa 26 right at the end and the most private) and the balcony was to die for. We set our alarm to watch sunrise with a cup of tea on our last day. So worth it.

The food is brilliant, wine was very good, not cheap for obvious importing reasons.

We did some scuba diving and it was superb I would HIGHLY recommend their dive outfit to anyone, even for a fun dive.

I cannot explain how much this island is like paradise....we watched turtles hatch and set them free in the sea. It's like being in a dream. You must go!!!!!

What a gorgeous place this is! Our chalet was very comfortable and nicely decorated with indoor bathroom and outdoor shower as well.
Staff is very friendly and helpful, food is great.
there are three little sea turtle hatcheries on the island and you can see the babies hatch and can help release them and you can learn a bit about conservation.
Snorkeling is great, you can see a lot of corals, fish, sea turtles.
I wish we could have spent a few more days! I hope we can go back one day.

I wanted to relax on a tropical island while on our holiday as it was my birthday. My son and I had a lovely time for the 3 nights we were there.

We're not divers so went snorkelling every day once or twice. The sea life is just gorgeous and it's great to get in warm water every time. We really enjoyed the wide range of delicious food - I was pleasantly surprised with that. The bonus was seeing turtles hatch every night and we even got to see a turtle on the beach laying her eggs. All up it's a gorgeous place to snorkel, relax and see the turtles.

Every kind of tropical reef fish possible, robust and abundant corals, many many larger marine wildlife (turtles, rays, large reef shark -- and that's just around the resort!). A wonderful SMALL and intimate resort with lovely cabins cantilevered over the beach, beautiful dining hall, excellent marine protection center (they assist with patrols and public education) -- on a little island that also has birds and butterflies. Very gracious, enthusiastic, and helpful staff. Well worth the travel to get there! We will definitely be back!

We were two adults and a kid of 12 years. We spend 4 days here snorkling and relaxing, but could easily have spend more time. We are not experienced divers, but were still able to get some great experiences. The food at the resort is fine, and pricing for drinks etc are not to bad.
