The resort is paradise, the staff are great, the place is really living up to its slogan "Whatever, Whenever". Just try it yourself over there and you will get what I mean by that. We spent our honeymoon + new year there and it was perfect. The only remark I have is that it might be a little overpriced compared...

True paradise, one of the few places to completely charge your batteries. Our room ( Ocean Oasis) is just perfect, spacious and with a beautiful private terace getting you directly to the amazing reefs. The beach is small ( takes more to walk from your room to any facility, then to take a walk around the main island) but it...

It is nice to find something that can still surprise you, even if you are used to nice high-end hotels all over the world. I was with my wife for a brief 3-night stay in an amazing ocean villa (even too amazing... a bit too modern-style maybe) and we realised that four times a day there is someone from the...
