I can't really fault the island. Everything was excellent and food especially was of high quality, although a three meals a day plan was a bit too much food for myself and my family we preferred the two meal package on Treasure. Visited Castaway after being to Treasure and we had been to Malola and Mana previously. Castaway is the...

If they would have let us buy our room, we would move in. Upon arrival, staff members sing you ashore and personally welcome you "home" They all went out of their way to be sure we were getting all that we needed for a great trip. Lingo, the Duty Manager, checked in with us each day to see how we...

We stayed on the island for 5 days over Christmas and had a lovely time, snorkelling, scuba diving, supping, cayaking, sunbathing, playing tennis, drinking and eating! The water was so clear and warm we didn't bother to try out the pool. Its worth making the little bush walk up to see the view. Our bungalow with ocean view was not...

We stayed here for a week in an ocean front bure. The room is small but well appointed and just a few feet from the beach. However, toiletries were lacking. The lagoon itself has some wonderful snorkeling (especially in the north beach side) and better than the snorkel trips offered by the dive center. The staff itself are very friendly...

From the moment you step off the boat onto the white sand, up to the Sundowner Bar for a welcome drink, you know that time spent on this island will be memorable. A personal tour around the island shows you the beautiful pools, bures and restaurants. Days are spent lazily by the pool, snorkelling or any number of water activities,...
