No regrets

Prague, Czech Republic

After spending 16 days here, this is my summary. So, is it expensive? You probably can already judge that yourself by seeing the prices of the villas. Yes, they know how to charge for things. Is it worth it? Every single cent, yes, and more. I had read a lot of reviews on this island resort and the general consensus is that it’s the best holiday you will ever have. I simply could not find anything in all our time here that would make me feel any different. This experience has probably ruined every future holiday we have, because no previous holiday comes close to what we experienced from the moment we arrived. Everyone knows your name. Everyone, without exception, goes out of their way to make sure you feel like the most important guest here. It’s just so surreal. Special thank you to Jan, the general manager of the whole resort. Never have I met a nicer, friendlier gentleman as he. You can see why every member of his staff give 110%. And Mahmoud, our concierge. What a guy to have looking after your every wish. He makes your every request his mission. This whole experience is hard to put into words. It’s as if you are in a virtual reality world looking at someone’s imagination as to the prettiest and most perfect vacation island to ever exist. It really is that beautiful. We ate in every restaurant, every meal was our favourite. The buffets are exceptional. The sheer quality of the food and chefs will astound you. Everyone takes so much care and pride in what they do, no matter how small, or big, their roll is in delivering perfection every single time. If I was forced to pick one, then our favourite restaurant was Botanica purely because of the sheer enthusiasm of the team and ethos of the restaurant. We had a private beach dining experience where I proposed to my girlfriend. From the rose petals along the sand to our love cabana, the photographer and the violinist, that experience alone was enough for her to say yes! Kids Only Club. Our daughter who was 3 years old pretty much demanded to go after breakfast every morning. We would let her stay for an hour or so. The staff are so amazing and so creative with the children. We have a suitcase full of pictures and crafts and our daughter has head full of memories. She was so upset to say good bye. The Spa, just need to say jaw dropping wow. Go find some pictures and you’ll understand. I was concerned that we may be bored stuck on an island for over 2 weeks, but could not have been more wrong. The time here goes so fast but at the same time, you lose all track of time. What you did 2 days ago seems a distant memory. And trying to remember when you actually arrived, forget it. The whole island is impeccably clean. The villas are like a show stopper after every morning and each evening with the turn down service. Room service is possibly the best selection of dining I have ever seen. Always delivered on 30 minutes, and never once any complaints. Like I said at the very beginning, it’s expensive. And I can understand why 60% of first time visitors return. We will be returning, next year for our wedding. You would want to return too, even if you had to forfeit a whole years holidays just to come back here every 2 years. Or had to cancel the new car for a while. Any sacrifice you need to make, you would. It really is that good.
