Guibin Z. Couples China, July 25, 2015
Overal good but with some unpleasant experiences

Great location, beautiful view, nice snorkeling area
The service management needs to be improved. We were arranged with sunset water bungalow initially but somehow it was changed to sunrise bungalow when we moved in, which is really a disappointment. Associated with this, there were wrong messages sent to us which were supposed to be sent to the couple who initially lived in the room. Apart from this another bad thing about the hotel is the poor housekeeping as we found sands on bedsheets. Otherwise the location is great and view is beautiful.

Faten A. Families with older children Saudi Arabia, July 23, 2015
High quality &a very professional staff

Staff are very very helpful , the hotel is only 25 minutes from airport, the view is amazing.
We had a great time at our beach villa.all the hotel employees will do their best to help .none of them have ever said no even if what you ask is not their job. My father is An old man with dementia and walking difficulties ,the resort did their best to make our stay comfortable .I would recommend divide the stay between the water villa and beach villa.I have tried all the restaurants and all of them were excellent .the BBQ night was amazing . The spa was also perfect and the prices were reasonable compared to 5 stars hotels.they provide free snorkeling equipment ,life jackets ,rain coats . The only thing I wish it's there was Nspresso machine or a coffee machine.

Tham K. Couples Singapore, July 3, 2015
Good location for honeymooners

1. Nice and cosy room 2. Nice for snorkeling 3. Friendly staff
The stay was nice and my wife was happy with the environment and friendly staff. The buffet breakfast was good with good spread of choices. The snorkeling was good with nice places to see different types of fishes. We managed to upgrade to water bungalow which had given us good experiences with private pool and staircase to have direct access to the sea for snorkeling. It was a good memory for our honeymoon and it is highly recommended for newly weds.

Crystal clear blue waters

pristine beach and waters, clean accommodation and easy access by boat
Relaxing stay overall. Best feature had to be the clear blue waters and snorkeling by the beach.
