Just returned from 10 days all inclusive at Vakaru in a Water Villa and had a wonderful holiday. It is a solid 4 star hotel, and whilst the water villas are huge and definitely 4 star plus, the public areas are looking a little tired. However the service is universally excellent with the staff in the bar, restaurant and rooms...

The island is a wonderful little piece of paradise. It is a small island with not much to do other than relax, enjoy your time under the sun and snorkel in their wonderful house reef.
