Amazing experience
Faultless resort. We stayed for a week in one of the water villas with half board. The room was super spacious, cleaned twice a day. There are fish, baby sharks, reys, all at your footstep. There were plenty of food options and activities. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Excursions were a bit pricey but it's to be expected as you are quite isolated

10/10 Exceptional

Paradise on earth. Our only complaint was the beverage service at the restaurants - very slow. Otherwise the food was divine and varied and generous! The overwater bungalows were heavenly and worth the ‘upgrade’ we would have been disappointed with the beach bungalow personally. So if you’re wondering if it’s worth the money for a little bit of luxury, then yes it is! In the same vein, I don’t think the jacuzzi or pool are worth it as you’ll be in the crystal clear waters every chance you get! They are shallow and warm - bring your water shoes!
