Perfect !

Bedfordshire

Stayed for 10 nights in May, we stayed in a Lagoon villa which was lovely, didn't manage to snorkel directly from the room but the sea life was amazing as was the Heron who helped himself to a drink from the pool ! I cannot fault this resort at all, the service, the staff, nothing is any trouble. The restaurant had a selection for everyone, exceptional quality every time. I loved the relaxed vibe, none of this long trousers in the evening malarky, just come as you are. The room staff were brilliant, great job every day. They even have a Doctor on the Island which was great and they don't charge you for meds can you believe that !!! If you've booked here rest assured you will have an amazing time, I have never booked another holiday as soon as I've got home but guess what, we've already booked to go the the sister Island Sangeli for next year thats just how good this place was !

The Best Service I’ve Ever Had

Bengaluru, India

From start to finish this was fabulous. The excursions to snorkel and fish were lovely, the food and drinks were well done, the island was gorgeous, the room was on point, and the price was right. On top of all of this the staff and service was stellar. They were so friendly and looking to make sure you had a blast. For the birthday trip they took the time to deck our room out with a cake, artwork out of tree leaves/flowers/ towels and they even took us to a secluded area with an eclogues saying happy birthday while they beat on a drum and sang us happy birthday! One night my companion didn’t feel well and without even mentioning it to anyone we immediately got a call to the room to check in and offer a medical staff to support. I can’t give these folks enough praise.
