It was OK but was it worth the cost?
Our stay was OK but in our opinion it was not 4 star and definitely not worth $390 per night. The bed was comfortable but the sheets were pilled; the outdoor shower was excellent, the bathroom looked like it had been recently upgraded but the curtains were not black-out, the hems were diwn and there was lots of dust etc visible under the bed; tea and coffee making facilities were available as was a bar fridge and air con. The gardens were beautifully kept and there's a great restaurant on site. A basic breakfast is available as part of the room charge. A car/bike hire office is opposite and the once per hour bus runs oast the driveway. There is no free wifi and the swimming pool was surprisingly very cold. Reef shoes are available for walking in the lagoon.

Resort much more private/exclusive than some of the larger resorts that we checked out. Rooms exceptionally clean and comfortable and serviced daily. Great restaurant, great staff, great location, great pool, great entertainment. Snorkelling is okay in front of the resort but better in some other areas. I would definitely stay here again next time. Loved it.

Very good 8.0
Great restaurant with adjacent swimming pool, sun lounging deck and deck chairs on the beach. The beach was beautiful but not better than Mira Beach and the efforts to support guests better enjoy their stay could have been improved, e.g. communication about free island tour and best ways to get about
