Hotel's Favourite
Wow what an amazing place! There is virtually nothing to find fault with. The staff are the absolute heartbeat of this resort and provide truly outstanding service. From arrival on the seaplane - which is really fun and very well organised- you feel truly welcomed. A WhatsApp group is created so information is shared with you but also to provide a quick way to communicate with the staff. In arrival you also get a sorbet and cold towel which was much appreciated. Alina showed us around and our room which was a lovely way to get orientated. We had a beach villa with a pool which was stunning. A beautiful room and amazing outside bathroom! Our package included drinks and so we had a minibar included- we requested some different drinks and they delivered in a very short time and soft drinks refilled every day. Our villa was 163 on the sunrise side of the island which is perfect as the view is outstanding and you can go to the bar on the sunset side to have drinks and watch the sun go down. We loved the environmentally friendly features - no plastic and refillable bottles. Even the bar only had glass and cans. There are also sustainable projects running like coral planting which you can get involved with. The room had showel gel, shampoo, conditioner and soap so no need to pack these! Also a range of extra toiletries such as a razor, toothbrush and toothpaste. Each room also has Umbrellas. Handily, the plug sockets are the same as those in Britain! My top tip if you want to dry anything is to hang it over the rail outside next to the air con unit as it gets dry quickly there! Yellow towels are provided for use in your own plunge pool. The Sunbeds are really comfortable and the view to the lagoon is stunning. Loved having a private bit of beach so no worrying about getting Sunbeds! The lagoon is amazing - getting up to watch the sunrise and standing in the lagoon at low tide and watching the fish swim around you is a magical experience. There are lots of Sunbeds and seats around the pool and bar area - very comfortable and a good range of being in the shade or not. Litu got the bar ready every morning and fr day 2 knew what our first order of the day would be. He is such a lovely, friendly person offering amazing service. There is no hassle getting a sunbed every day and towels are put out ready for you. The service in the bar is outstanding. Really great cocktail menu - and Sunil was always happy to make something special for you. Shibin was also incredibly helpful and remembered what we drank in the afternoon and evening. As I said before - the staff are truly brilliant! The food in the bar is lovely - as it is in the main restaurant. That offers a different theme every evening and it's delicious! Shah who served us each day in the restaurant again remembered very quickly what we drank at breakfast and lunchtime - such great personal service. The island is simply stunning. There are loads of fish - and some sharks - that can be seen really easily in the lagoon. Daily house reef snorkeling was great. Ahmed in the dive centre was very knowledgeable and supportive. We also did the whale shark trip - unfortunately we didn't see any as the water was too rough, but we did some great snorkeling. Take some deet spray if are prone to getting bitten as lunch is on a local island but I got bitten to death! We did the sunset cruise which was absolutely great- watching dolphins playing, whilst drinking pink champagne and watching the sunset is such a fabulous experience. Susmith made us feel very welcome and was very interesting to talk to. The trips are well worth the cost. The bar had a 'club' feel on Sat night which was really fun. It also offers a book exhange, pool and bar games. The outdoor cinema was brilliant! My other tips are bring beach shoes (as the old corals are sharp) and some Antiseptic cream in case of coral scrapes. Also use the toilets by reception as the ones by the bar are really tiny! My only suggestion to the hotel would be to add some sunbeds which are semi submerged on the wide shelf in the main pool as these would be great! All in all, a truly incredible island with the best service and most amazing staff I have ever encountered. I could not recommend it more!

I had the best vacation! The underwater environment near the resort is very good, so you can have a wonderful snorkeling experience. And there are many kind and friendly employees. I would like to express my special thanks to Imran. I was uncomfortable because I hurt my leg, but thanks to his help, I was able to recover well and come back safely. I can't wait to visit again next time.

What a lovely place. The Ocean Villas were amazing. Despite being detached from the main Island, we had the Azzuro Restaurant & Bar. All the staff were very polite and helpful. Loved the Funa Restaurant, which is a must try. Plenty to do also.

We stayed 5N , Excellent. A the staff were kind. In particular, when we didn't order coffee in the morning, Laila was trying to take care of us, saying that coffee was free, and I was moved. Also, snorkeling trip is an unforgettable experience and I really want to come back. I'll miss the food at the Azzouro restaurant when I go back to Korea. I highly recommend Angsana. Spa was also great!!😍😍

We stayed for 11 nights at one of the water villas. This was our second trip, and we’re probably going to come back again. We had an absolutely wonderful time, and would definitely recommend staying here. Would like to especially highlight the dinner service and the sunset views. Just one small recommendation: if you go swimming a lot, bring a pair of water shoes, the seafloor by the villas isn’t as even as the beach.

My husband and I visited for our honeymoon, from the second we arrived it was heavily, we were welcomed by nada who took us to reception where we had cold towels to freshen up and come tea. She the walked us to our room which was beautiful, we had a beach villa with infinity pool that lead straight to the beautiful beach. We were welcomed at breakfast by narshad who was our waiter the whole time we were there, he was so lovely and attentive as were all staff. We did the whale shark snorkelling trip which is quite expensive but when you see them and get to swim next to such a beautiful animal it’s all worth it. We also did the snorkelling safari which is $75 each but we actually saw more in the lagoon at the hotel so I wouldn’t say it’s worth it really. Would recommend doing the sunset cruise, you get canapés, pink fizz and get to see dolphins which was so beautiful, as was the sunset. We had a couples full body massage which was absolutely amazing, the spa is great and the therapist are fab at what they do. The best place to snorkel is in the lagoon around by room 157 going towards where you can hire out canoe’s and do water activities, unfortunately we only found that out 2 days before we left but there are plenty of reef sharks and other beautiful fish there. Best to wear reef shoes around there rather than flippers. We had a good solid week of hot weather when we arrived but unfortunately the last couple of days have been heavy rain and tropical storms but we have made the most of it, it’s still beautiful even in the rain. At 4pm daily on the jetty there are massive sting rays that come to be fed by the dive centre staff, beautiful to watch, also at 10.30 and 4.30 you can feed the love bird, it’s beautiful as they just get to fly around the island nice and free but know when it’s food time, they will all flock to the Avery and land on you for food. You will see bats, lizards, gecko’s and lots of crabs, it’s their home so be kind as they will not hurt you. In the bathroom you get shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bubble bath, hand soap and body cream so if you didn’t want to pack a lot of toiletries you don’t have to. All in all would definitely come back to this beautiful island.. massive thank you to all the staff, you are worth your weight in gold. X
