Perfect place for an idyllic getaway
Amazing location and an extremely helpful staff - especially Prakash and Shubham. They went out of their way to arrange a wonderful experience for our wedding anniversary. Wish we could have stayed longer. The expansive villa allotted to us had amazing views of the ocean. We had a great time here that will be forever etched in our memories!

Great place for families or couples
We had a wonderful stay here. The snorkelling was outstanding, like swimming in a fish tank. We were in a two room suite which had loads of space for our family of 4 and a great balcony where we could sit out. The two pools were a welcome place to relax. The catering was good. We have perhaps had better but it is difficult to say what they could have done in practical terms to improve it. The staff are quite simply excellent.

A nice place to stay but its location is problematic. You depend on their boat transportation. The cost of transportation from airport to the resort is too expensive

A Memorable Stay
The room and service is fantastic. The food is average, the internet connection is very limited. The hotel is located in a remote island with a little nice beach, two swimming pool, amazing ocean view for whatever the place you are at on the island. The hotel only have 24 very private house located in the heart of forest , from the window the green and and ocean are all over your face. The room is very large, the washroom is even bigger, with double sided jacuzzi, outside shower, it is so comfortable and relaxing. The stuff is supper friendly, they also go above and beyond to arrange your itinerary for you. The front desk stuff is supper nice, particularly the young handsome east India fellow, he is very resourceful and helpful. Compared with the nice room and service, the food is just about average, and the internet connection is not that great. All and all, I really enjoyed my stay here, I wish I could spent more time...
