The staff is very friendly and simply amazing! Our first waiter name Tara at the Main restaurant was great! He always greeted us and made sure our dining experience was great. The restaurant for the water bungalows provided a phenomenal service. From the time you enter and until you leave they made sure everything was great! This is a great resort to stay. I highly recommend the water bungalow.

מקום מדהים ביופיו. החופים הכי מקסימים שראינו. הוילות על המים זו חוויה מדהימה אך גם הוילות על החוף כיפיות. הבריכה הציבורית מקסימה. אפשר לשחק טניס, כדורסל, פינג-פונג, ביליארד וגולף. האוכל היה מגוון אך לא מהמשובחים.

10/10 Exceptional

The Resort is extraordinary, beautiful, nice landscape, beaches, clean rooms and excellent staff, free sport possibilities, nice food. A really big choice of everything was available. I missed nothing. Most important the staff, Elias our cleaning service, cleaned our room 3 times a day, was so friendly and the room was always in perfect condition. Mahesh our table service was really friendly and asking for everything we needed, he always had a chat with us and was the best service I can imagine. Hussein the waiter at the coffee machine was also ver special with us, friendly and bringing the coffee to our table, always there for us. And the diving center has very competent teachers, we made our open water diver course with Sahid and he was an excellent instructor. The diving excursions are also really amazing
