  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Staff was nice and helpful all around the hotel. The rooms are spacious and like the rest of the hotel very well designed in a minimalist fashion. All is spotless clean of course because all is new. The furnishing of the breakfast area which also serves as main restaurant is poor and has zero ambience. The terrible light lay out in the evening does not help either. Like the fine dining restaurant, it reminded us more of a student dining hall. We had dinner every night in the bar area because we simply disliked the restaurant area. The furnishing of the fine dining area is equipped with staff that could have been used in a 70ies office space. Just tasteless. Re design and light layout we would have some clear suggestions...The island lacks green because plants still have to grow. All is new. It will take some years to get some ambience I reckon. The dive centre is very nice and professional as well as friendly re staffing. We especially liked the top attention and friendly service at the dive centre.

New property that is still experiencing growing pains. Only one restaurant and two bars. Pool is clean but cold. No activities either during the day or at night. Staff was extremely friendly and mean well, however the service could have been a lot more proactive as opposed to reactive.

We loved mostly everything Be careful of the stairs in the loft at night. If you r older go for beachfront or bungalow Loved snorkelling with nurse sharks Also if in bungalow when u enter the water the last few stairs r very slippery. Make sure u wear reefs shoes Plenty of fish rays etc ju st o outside your room. Great diving school. Heaps of sharks n fish there too. We were a bit disappointed with the sandbank snorkelling. No fish there better at resort. Overall fab stay Loved the staff n food too Pristine

The sunset water bungalow was amazing. The property was still very new, so they were not 100% settled. The staff are wonderful, the food is wonderful, the rooms are really well done and furnished. As a solo female traveler, I appreciated the peace and the safety of the place. They are well orchestrated from the time you reach the airport to the transfer to the hotel and back.
