Excellent service from the moment we arrived at the airport. Everything was made so easy and all of the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The stay was for my wife's birthday and they made a truly memorable day! Very easy 30 min speed boat transfer and a beautiful island. The food in all the restaurants was excellent.

I highly recommend this resort. The staff was exceptional. We were pampered from the time we stepped foot onto the island. Amazing staff and beautiful place. The diving was hands down one of the best spots to dive. I would not stay anywhere else. Thank you for such a memorable experience. I will return as fast as I can.
