This resort is quite simply - incredible. The people who work there are all smiles and cannot do enough for you. I could not find one thing to be upset about for a full week - it was amazing!

The whole island is the resort - currently 92 'rooms' with over 200 staff. From the very personal welcome the service throughout is extraordinary. The staff are super friendly without being irritating, they all take time to remember who you are.

A beautiful Island with beach villas, with or without pools. North and South over water villas and overwater pool villas, North villas (sunset villas) can be noisy when it's windy but great for snorkeling, South villas are not so noisy when windy, but also great for snorkeling at low tide. Beach, South and North villas are identical inside all very...

We stayed in an over water pool villa, which was great; clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. Although staff said the resort was at full capacity, we did not feel like the resort was crowded. Meals were really good, including the specialty restaurant. If there was something we didn't like, the chef was willing (and offered) to make something else. The...

This is a long way from London (about 20 hours in total), but well worth the journey. Highly recommended, especially if you can get a deal, as we did on Secret Escapes - excellent value.

We loved our honeymoon here! Just a quick note : there are both sunrise and sunset villas, and north and south villas. The ones on the North side of the island are on very shallow water so when the tide goes out, the sand becomes exposed and you can't walk out into the ocean from your villa. We highly recommend...
