What can I say, we had a fabulous holiday at Dhonveli got back late saturday. The amount of sealife in the lagoon is impressive. We stayed in beach bungalow 219, which was great for access to the lagoon but not quite as private as we thought but we did get used to it. We had previously stayed at the sister...
