We found prices a bit steep $125 for a couples massage $45...

Me and my partner really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It truly was paradise. The staff could not have been any more helpful or pleasant. The food was beautiful. The rooms were fantastic, we stayed in the over water suites. Couldn't recommend them more.

I have chosen this hotel based on tripadvisor's rating and I must say that it was a really good decision. We spent the first night in a superior room numer 303 which was spacious and facing a secluded, small beach. I recommend the room to everybody who doesn't want to spend more money on a water villa. Then we decided...
