    Great place for family vacation

    Amazing holiday experience in a beautiful private island. Harmonized with the sea and mountain, makes an absolutely beautiful scenery. The employees are really friendly to us, always smiling, do everything what we want from them. Best place for holidays with family.

    Of course the natural beauty is out of this world. The service is second to none, really had a wonderful experience with each staff member we encountered. The villas are superb. A perfect way to unwind in a small private space of your own. Each room is equipped with refill water and your own water bottles. The restaurants have refilling stations too. The rooms are also equipped with natural mosquito repellent and toiletries. Every morning staff are cleaning the beach from plastics that get washed up on the shore.

    The resort is perfect if you want to relax. It was very quiet, even at CNY, we practically had the place to ourselves. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the setting is beautiful.

    Heavenly!!

    Amazingly beautiful place!! We arrived on a late flight but they had a transfer waiting for us to take us to the island. The staff was friendly and quick to bring the golf cart to take us to meals and home again. We loved the open air huts on the pier but would suggest to have a system to alert the staff when in need of a cocktail as they don't service this area. Otherwise, a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate to go again. The snorkeling was fantastic right off the pier! No need to book a tour to do this as other boats come from KK to the same reef right outside your door!!!
