I lived the resort, the location is incredible. The staff are great, it's well managed with a personal touch of the owner. You choose what you want to do and when you do it. It's the ultimate couples place to take time off ( and dive)

I very much doubt your money was stolen in Sangat by our staff because it has never happened before in the last 20 years of operation. Why would any of my staff go to the trouble of picking some ones lock when they have many easier opportunities to steal money left laying around by guests. You mentioned in your review...

This is a beautiful and peaceful resort for low-maintenance people. The most striking thing about this place is the staff- everyone is so nice and genuinely welcoming. The beach is beautiful and the island is perfectly located for diving. We loved how easy it was to just hop in the boat, drive for only about 5 minutes, and be at...

Without a doubt this resort is one of the most beautiful I've ever been to - about 400yds of pristine palm fringed beach with the sea in front and a rocky cliff behind all sheltered from the worst of the wind.
