A Tropical Paradise

Welwyn, United Kingdom

WOW!! What an amazing place!! If you are looking for a tropical paradise where you can walk for a mile along a deserted beach, eat excellent food receive great service and stay in good accommodation, this is the place for you. The staff on Denis are wonderful. They have all bought into the philosophy of the hotel and appear to be proud of what they offer. They are warm and welcoming whether it's the team that meet you from your flight and are later to be found at reception, the staff in the restaurant, the bartender, the guy that cleans your room or the people looking after the tortoises or working on the farm - they all have a smile and a nice word to say to you. A special mention must go to the chefs. My wife is gluten intolerant but they catered for this without any problem whatsoever. In a lot of restaurants, they are fine until it comes to the dessert, but on Denis they made a special effort with the desserts and this was very much appreciated. There were a also a couple of standout food moments - the rack of lamb was to die for and the Japanese theme evening was amazing. Our accommodation was excellent and perfectly in keeping with the island. Our only slight disappointment was with the snorkelling. We didn't go on a boat trip for this but snorkelled off the beach inside the reef - I didn't see a thing which was a shame. Perhaps it was the weather - there had been a lot of storms and heavy rain in the previous weeks which may have affected the conditions and therefore the sea life. This wasn't however the reason we went to Denis, so it didn't make a huge difference to us. There is also no phone signal on the island and wi-fi is only available in and around the library - people weren't looking at their phones over dinner - they had to talk to one another!! Werner, thanks very much to you and your team for making our stay on Denis so wonderful. Hopefully we will be back...

Paradise is here

Rio de Janeiro, RJ

Private Island with great service and beautiful cabanas. I wish I could stay one month just relaxing, walking in the white sand or biking around the Island. We had a delicious sushi dinner. Can wait to go back.
