When you pay the kind of prices this resort charges (£500+/night) you expect a certain level of service and standards. Unfortunately we encountered a number of things during our 3 days stay on the island that fell far short of the service i had anticipated...More

The trip was bumpy on the way there and you will be accompanied by soldiers for protection as they had some issues a couple of years ago. We got three dives in easily and it was well worth it. Sipidan has a beach and you will have lunch there before your final dive. It is absolutely worth every second of the trip there and back!!!

if you have any food restriction, you may inform this upon reservation then make clear with the restaurant staff again on arrival. the chef can prepare one special dish for you then have a look what you could have from the buffet line.
