If you want the most relaxing holiday, in an uncrowded resort, this is the place for you. The snorkelling is right off the beach, the water amazingly clean and clear and the air should be bottled! Cocktails as you watch the shimmering reflection of the beautiful sunset reflected is a must.

This was our first stop on our honeymoon and it was gorgeous. The rooms could do with a refurb to bring it a bit more up to date with styling, however I don't go on holidays to stay in my room either! On walking out of our fare we were literally steps away from the beach. This was perfect for...

We stayed for 8 nights at the end of August and had a fantastic time. From the start the service was very good and extremely relaxed. The resort is really well set out with plenty of space. All the fare's are within a few meters of the beach and are very clean with very comfortable firm beds. Bathroom is spacious...

We booked at short notice, desperate to escape Sydney's cold winter and with our Bali trip cancelled due to volcanic ash we had little pre conceived idea of what to expect.

This place is a hidden gem. The people are warm and friendly the facilities are wonderful. Step out of you door to your own private piece of paradise. The food was exceptional and service way beyond expectations. I would come here again and again as many of the visitors here have.
