One of the close to airport hotels
The hotel is within 20 minuets by speedboat. We selected it vecuase we fid not want to travel to further islands by domistic planes or seaplanes. Overall very good selection with good varaity of resturants to eat from. Half board or full board package is recomended as there are no other eatig option on the island. It is only this hotel.

Romantic place for couple
Me and my husband had a great experience in our over water bungalow with pool. Foods are great! especially their service. Probably the best service ever for us. Everything quite expensive. But it was the best vacation ever for us.
