It is a kind of unique experience on earth. What do you gonna do over there? Well, i personally swum around the island. Took me 2h20. Never did that before. Didn't plan to do it. On this little piece of paradise you are with yourself. You can surprise you. You can face your truth. You can dream. You can get busy, Go fishing, Go snorkeling, Meet the locals and the owners who live there already 5 years, but never you do, you will create life souvenirs. Enjoy 😁👍

Reconnect isn't your typical luxury resort, it's more of an authentic island living experience. The resort itself looks great. But you don't go there for the luxury. You go there for the experience of living on a beautiful remote island, far away from everything else. The resort is actually quite simple. I stayed at the Beach Villa room, which is the highest standard room there is. And all the meals were included. I had a snorkeling set to explore around, and really enjoyed the beauty of the reef. I stayed for 3 nights, but next time I should stay for one or two weeks. Other positive point, the island is the closest from mainland (Ampana), so you get the remote feeling but you can reach there in 30 minutes only! Will definitely come back

Reconnect is truly a life changing experience. Having lived on different islands, there's a peace on Buka Buka you can't find anywhere else. I recommend anyone looking for something not touristy and more connected to nature to give it a try!
