Arrival (and Recpetion): We arrived at Hakuraa Huraa on a complete high from our wedding 3 days prior; a high that was maintained and elevated during our 5 night stay at this wholesome and fantastic resort. We arrived via seaplane, to the beat of a drum and led to the reception building where we were greeted by Wilma, who gave us a very clear and helpful introduction to the island. We were then taken, via golf buggy, for a tour of the resort, before arriving at our Platinum Beach Bungalow, 403 on the Platinum Island. Accomodation: We were fortunate enough to be staying on the Platinum Island of the resort in one of their Platinum Beach Bungalows. The Bungalow was immaculately clean on arrival and this was maintained throughout our stay, with the regular and appropriate cleaning and room maintenance. The fridge was restocked with complimentary snacks, soft and alcoholic drinks and fresh towels provided as and when we requested. The bungalow was a 15m walk over the white sands, from the crystal blue sea (which you could snorkel in freely during the daytime). Every morning, the crab holes in the sand would be levelled by the friendly beach staff with regimented sweeping. The bungalow was incredibly spacious and had a proper feel of luxury and was the ultimate honeymoon accomodation. Being on the Platinum Island meant that it was adult only, which elevated the holiday even further. It was the perfect environment for a blissful time. Manzaru Restaurant: Manzaru is an incredibly relaxing and peaceful environment to eat three times a day. We were so incredibly lucky to have Hannan as our waiter for the duration of our visit. He would find us a table and take our drinks orders at every meal of the day. Although Hannan was also waiting on a number of other holidaymakers, he really made my wife and I feel as though we were the only people he was assisting, with his sharp and quick service, often being one step ahead of the game with our ordering. He is an absolute credit to Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa and it was a joy to see him numerous times across each day of our stay. In the kitchen, the chefs are equally as welcoming and helpful. We were fortunate enough to have Kalum and Nilantha (along with the head chef, who's name I did not get) cooking and preparing fantastic dishes for us three times a day. Along with Hannan, they were educational in their descriptions of local cuisine, whilst also encouraging us to try new things that they had worked out we would like. The culinary experience was exactly what we were looking for. My wife and I can attribute the significant weight gain to the deliciousness of the international cuisines they were cooking and serving up every day! Vevu Bar: The Vevu Bar is a fantastic venue, that was seemingly always relaxed and quiet, located nearby the bungalows and next door to the restaurant. The staff here were always helpful and tended to every beverage need! If we had stayed for longer, we would have definietly used this location more, but given the blissful and provate bungalow we had around the corner, i suspect we missed out on a couple more relaxing and tranqil days spent here. Crab Restaurant: We were treated to an evening meal on the beach at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the waiter on the evening we were there, Kushan (apologies if I have spelt this incorrectly) was incredibly helpful. he was rushed off his feet given his colleage had been taken ill earlier that day, but that didn't stop him from providing some more top class service. Reception continued: Wilma immediately made us feel incredibly welcome on the island and this continued throughout. Her colleague, Shathish, was able to source a GoPro charging cable and SD card for us at short notice and without fuss. He also assisted with a currency issue we had and was always (along with the rest of the reception staff) a friendly face who could not do more to accomodate us during the holiday. Scuba Diving: For my wife and I, Scuba diving in the Maldives was a dream of ours. We arrived as qualified divers and left with our mindblown by the beautiful reefs a short boat ride away. We did 3 dives with the resident diving legend...Magic. By name and by nature, this man is truly Magic. He was kind, helpful and humourous on every encounter and put us at complete ease both pre, post and during the 3 dives that we did with him. Magic educated us on better diving techniques and oceanic wildlife and regailed stories of his past dives. Magic has completed over 4,000 dives, but he treats each dive as if its his first...his complete wonder and excitement at the creatures swimming around and living on the reefs was so refreshing and increased the already infinitely enjoyable experience ten-fold. With him we saw an array of aquatic creatures, but it was quite something getting our first close up look at sharks, octopus, tuna, lionfish and of course a sleeping turtle on our night dive! Magic's boat crew were on hand at every step, preparing us for the dive and feeding us once they had helped us back into the boat, with cocounut and delicious homemade Maldivian snacks. It saddens me that only a handful of the world's Scuba divers will be able to experience a dive with Magic as these truly were unforgettable experiences. Hakuraa Huraa - Overall: 5* - Staff & People 5* - Facilities 5* - Ocean 5* - Food 5* - Weather (we were lucky) 5* - Cleanliness 5* - EVERYTHING We hope to be back soon! George & Rosie O'Hara (403)

Hotel's Favourite
I echo the sentiments of the many positive reviews left about this resort, and I have to say once you have visited the Maldives (in particular this resort), trust me when I say you won't want to holiday anywhere else, in my view nowhere else compares! Apologies in advance for the essay, but I have to share mine and my (now fiancée's!) incredible experience with you as I feel the people who work on the island deserve full credit for making our holiday the best we've ever had and also to give you some tips and advice if you're considering visiting this resort:- From Male airport to the resort We arrived in Male at 9.40am after travelling on an overnight flight and once through customs, everything was very well organised. We found our TUI rep straight away, he shown us to the resort desk and then after checking in with the resort rep we were shown to the seaplane desk to check in our luggage. Soon after we got on a shuttle bus to the VIP lounge where we waited for our seaplane flight to the island. The private lounge was very welcoming after a tiring overnight flight - we were given a cold flannel on arrival, there were free refreshments, free WiFi and nice comfy chairs to relax in (there is also a smoking area outside). 2 hours later we got on the seaplane that took us to the island (approx 45 mins trip) and that in itself was a magnificent experience - to see the beautiful islands on the ocean below shimmering in the sun like emerald jewels was simply stunning! Once we arrived at the island, to our amazement we were greeted by a big welcome sign, staff members playing the drums for us (known as the bodu beru), we were presented with handmade garlands and given a cold flannel and drink as well as a complimentary metal flask each with our names on. We were also given a brief explanation of the island's facilities, check in was straightforward and we were then escorted on a buggy with our luggage to our water villa (we stayed in room 305). The whole process was very well orchestrated and went smoothly. Accommodation The water villa was spotless, very spacious, a super king size bed (brilliant if you like space to sprawl out!), there was a welcome decoration on the bed which was a nice touch, a partial glass bottom floor so you can see the lagoon beneath you, a shaded terrace with sunbeds, a comfy sofa and steps that lead down to the lagoon where you can go snorkelling and explore the marine life. As the lagoon is quite shallow, the best time to go snorkelling around the water villas we found was between 3pm - 6pm when the tide is higher (if the water depth reaches the 3rd or 4th step from the bottom of the sea then that's the perfect time to snorkel). The resort also offers 2 free boat trips each day to the edge of the house reef, 10am and 2pm I believe for an hour each time. We would highly recommend doing the snorkelling on the house reef as you can see tons of beautiful coral and marine life! The lagoon itself is also teeming with lots of marine life which you can see around the water villas (we saw stingrays, bluefin trevally, surgeonfish, butterfly fish, reef sharks, anenomes, trigger fish etc). Food The food here is faultless I had nothing to complain about - there is a good selection to choose from each day and caters to everyone's tastes. They chop and change some of the dishes so that it isn't the same constantly, and it tastes absolutely delicious! Excursions There is a very good variety of excursions on offer (i.e. island hopping, dolphin watching, shark feeding, game fishing). We did the island hopping and dolphin watching which we would highly recommend you do, however when I asked at reception I was disappointed to learn that the resort does not offer guided tours of the capital, Male. This is more of a suggestion than a criticism, but it would be amazing if the resort offered this excursion in future so that people could explore and learn more about the cultural aspect of the Maldives. I appreciate it's a 45 minute seaplane trip but I believe many tourists would be willing to pay for this experience (as I would have done) as this is a once in a lifetime holiday for the majority. Entertainment The entertainment was varied, fun and of a good standard - there was a duo who sang at the main bar most evenings and it was a very chilled and relaxing environment. There were also several themed nights such as the bodu beru dancing where candles were lit on the beach and the audience were invited to dance to the bodu beru drums which was brilliant. One night they had crab racing with prizes up for grabs, there was a cinema themed night on the beach and we were invited to have flaming cocktails at the main bar another evening. Nothing failed to impress me and I was very happy with the variety offered. Dive centre This was by far one of the main highlights of the holiday (after getting engaged on the beach!) Me and my fiancee did our open water diving course back home so that we could go scuba diving in the Maldives, and it met all of my expectations and then some! We did the night snorkelling with Kalhey and we saw Lionfish (apparently they only appear at night to go hunting for food) and gigantic reef sharks which are some of the biggest I've ever seen! We went on a jet ski snorkelling adventure with Ashraf to find turtles which was absolutely fantastic - sadly we didn't find any turtles but saw lots of beautiful fish and corals (even found nemo!!). Lastly, we went scuba diving on the reef with the one and only TripAdvisor star of this resort and Aquaman of the Indian ocean, Magic!! I was a nervous wreck and nearly didn't do the dive, but he made me feel completely at ease and stayed next to me the whole time we were underwater. He even took some photos / videos of me and my other half underwater with my digital camera which I will treasure forever and I am very grateful to him for that. I saw clown fish (always wanted to see nemo and I did!), lobsters, parrot fish, you name it we saw it! We went down to a depth of 12.6 metres for around 37 minutes and it was the best experience ever! To see the marine life in their natural environment is just amazing. Go scuba diving, you won't regret it! Spa The Mandara Spa is fantastic! Me and my partner each had a 1 hour balinese massage and it was very relaxing, so much so that I booked 2 further treatments! I enjoyed a Harmony package and treated myself to a french pedicure on our last day - absolutely amazing. The ladies in the spa are very friendly and professional who undertake treatments with the utmost care and dedication. You are presented with ginger tea (delicious by the way!) and a cold flannel infused with peppermint oil on arrival which was a very nice gesture. If you decide to book a treatment here, you won't be disappointed! Shout outs All of the staff on the island clearly work extremely hard to keep their guests happy and keep the island looking it's best, but the following people we feel deserve a special mention for going above and beyond and for making our holiday extra special:- Jess and Hazel (front of house) - Jess greeted us on arrival, she was extremely friendly, welcoming, kind and was genuinely happy to help with any questions we had. Hazel was also a very lovely lady and helped us book our excursions at reception. Again a very lovely and happy soul and their hospitality was out of this world; Unaish (our waiter) - he was such a sweet and kind young man, very happy and chatty, always asked how we were and how our day went. It was a pleasure to have him as our waiter and nothing was ever too much trouble for him; Niyaz (our house keeper) - he cleaned our room to a very high standard and we spoke to him on several occasions during our stay. Again he was genuinely friendly, kind, he made the effort to say hi to us each time we saw him, he was very knowledgeable of the marine life and his bed decorations were just out of this world!! My other half proposed to me on the beach one evening and I was over the moon, then when we returned to our water villa our bed was beautifully decorated with 2 swans made from towels and floral decorations made from leaves and flower petals. It was absolutely mind blowing and he is an incredibly clever and talented individual! Thank you Niyaz! Prasanda (chef in the buffet restaurant) - I went to his cooking station for breakfast every morning and he is an extremely talented chef! He cooked my poached eggs to perfection and were incredibly tasty - he even knew what I wanted after a couple of days without me needing to ask him! Kudos to you my friend! Purna (bar staff) - he was very friendly and his laugh is infectious! He did flaming cocktails one evening and his attention to detail and skill was definitely apparent! He made the effort to chat to us at the bar one evening and he was a genuinely nice person. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness Purna! Ismail (tour guide) - he was our tour guide on the island hopping excursion to Muli and Naalaafushi and he was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. He gave us an informative tour and was genuinely kind and gave a very high standard of service. Thank you! Ashraf (dive centre) - he took me and my partner out on the jet ski snorkelling adventure. He was very jolly and had a good sense of humour (his anti fog treatment for the masks is a top secret formula apparently ha!) and took some close up photos / videos of the fish and corals on the reef for us. A top guy and a pleasure to meet him! Last but not least... Magic (our dive instructor and Aquaman of the Indian Ocean!) - I read many good reviews about him on TripAdvisor before our holiday and they are all true to their word! He speaks with courtesy, another jolly soul and funny man (if you ask where he is from, don't believe him when he says he's from China haha!) I was a nervous diver but he made me feel completely relaxed and stayed by my side the whole dive, he was professional throughout and took many photos/videos for me underwater with my other half. I couldn't have asked for a better diving instructor and an asset to the resort team - thank you millions! Tips 1. Take rubber shoes for the beach/snorkelling as the sand can be quite rough on your feet at times; 2. Take your own mask / snorkel with you - borrowed ones tend to be worn and you may experience mask flooding especially when scuba diving which isn't a nice experience; 3. If you don't want to pay $27 for a small bottle of suncream, take plenty of it with you! We made the mistake of not taking enough with us and had to pay a lot of money for extra suncream from the gift shop. I would recommend taking 2 - 3 bottles of suncream with you each, you will need lots here as the sun is incredibly strong! 4. Although it is not expected and you are not obliged or put under any pressure to give a tip, we would highly recommend taking some US dollars for tipping the staff as they do an exceptionally good job going above and beyond what is expected of them; 5. We booked our holiday through TUI and we were not advised by TUI when booking that there are 2 all inclusive options - 'standard' and 'premium'. If you upgrade to premium (which costs around an extra £800 - £1k per couple for a week), absolutely everything is included i.e. all cocktails and drinks including international brands, the entire contents of the minibar which is replenished once daily, 2 complimentary excursions are included, an a la carte dinner on the beach at the Crab restaurant and a balinese massage at the spa each for one hour. You don't get these added benefits with the 'standard' package and is definitely worth the upgrade, you get your moneys worth. Contact the resort directly and they can upgrade you to the premium all inclusive option as this isn't available when booking through TUI's website; 6. We would highly recommend going scuba diving here - you only see half of the country if you don't! The underwater world is beautiful and it is the most surreal experience being able to see and swim with the marine life in their natural habitat. The dive team are extremely helpful and supportive and will do everything to put you at ease and feel relaxed - do it! I actually cried when I left the resort because it was the most amazing holiday, everything was perfect! The staff waved us off as we departed in the seaplane and a lovely member of staff called Yarn took a few photos of us on a Polaroid camera and gave them to us as a keepsake before we left - a lovely touch. That is my honest review of this resort, there is honestly nothing that I could fault about it. Me and my other half will definitely be coming back here one day! Thank you Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa and to all of your wonderful staff - keep up the amazing work that you do! ❤

Arrival: Our arrival via seaplane was an amazing experience with incredible views. We were welcomed warmly by the Cinnamon staff as we arrived (won’t ruin the surprises) and it was the most straightforward and easiest check in I’ve ever done. We were even driven to our room in a buggy! Room: We stayed in a sunset water villa which was outstanding, the best room I’ve ever stayed in! The view was incredible and we snorkelled under and around our room every day. We were villa 324 and we had hundreds of fish under our room! We brought an underwater camera with us to capture the scenes! The fridge was well stocked with glass bottles of Coke, Sprite, Fanta, soda water and tonic water, as well as mini spirits and cans of beer. It also had 2 bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk and (local brand) Pringles and bottles of water, all of which were replaced daily as we were on Virgin All Inclusive (the staff referred to it as Hybrid All Inclusive sometimes). The room had plenty of good quality toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion, as well as bits you might forget or run out of like a toothbrush and toothpaste and a shaving set. There was also ear plugs and eye masks for the windy/rainy evenings (it can get quite loud when it rains). The room even had life jackets (which I took on the snorkelling trips) and rain jackets. We met our house keeper Siraj on the first day and he was very lovely. He created a wonderful honeymoon decoration on our bed one night. Food: You are assigned a waiter and table for the duration of your stay. Samir looked after us very well was always smiling. He offered us a table by the window after 2 nights which provided us with a sea view. The food in the buffet restaurant was mostly excellent. In particular, the show cooking was usually a highlight including made to order stir fries, wraps and pancakes! Speaking of, the pancake man at breakfast (can’t remember his name) was outstanding. His pancakes and crepes were a 10/10 and I had them every morning. He was always so friendly and the pancakes were amazing! There is a ‘local table’ offering various curries, rice and accompaniments. I often sampled the food from this section and it was very tasty, although spicy! There was also a dessert room which was my idea of heaven! The selection of treats varied every day, but there was always a choice of mini cakes, mousses, fruit, ice cream and a hot pudding. Particular favourites of mine were the red velvet cakes and cashew nut blondies! My only niggle with the buffet would be that it wasn’t always as hot as I’d like, but it was always very tasty which made up for it. I’m a big foodie and cook a lot myself, so I can assure other foodies that you will always find something delicious at every meal. Like others, my worry was the limited windows for meal times. However, worry no more. I usually had 2 main courses and dessert at every meal, and always left feeling satisfied. I didn’t get snacky in the day like I would at home. However, they put on a few self serve snacks in the bar area between meals such as mini sandwiches and cakes. As part of our Virgin All Inclusive, we had a seafood platter at our table one night which was delicious! We also had a complimentary 4 course meal the Crab restaurant. The food was the same standard as the buffet in my opinion, however the ambience and service was exceptional. We were one of two couples dining that night and we had a table on the beach which was magical. Our waiter was very attentive and went above and beyond. I can’t remember his name, but we remember him as ‘Crab Man’ as he was at the Crab restaurant and afterwards hosted the crab racing which was a lot of fun! Every time we saw him after, he remembered us and greeted us with a handshake. Drinks: The coffee went from okay to excellent when the hotel upgraded their coffee machine to a self serve touch screen during our stay. Easy to use and fantastic cappuccinos. There was an excellent choice of cocktails and mocktails on both standard and premium all inclusive. It was nice being on Virgin All Inclusive as we could have milkshakes and premium spirits such as Grey Goose and Bombay Saphhire, so the upgrade was worth if. Excursions: I’d recommend the free snorkelling trip which is every day 10am-11am and 3pm-4pm. You can borrow a snorkel from the dive shop for free for the duration of you holiday. I took a life vest from the room on the snorkelling trip as I am not a strong swimmer. The crew were all very welcoming and helpful. I’d also recommend sunset shark watching which was $35 each. We got soft drinks on board and dozens of sharks gathered around the boat at sunset which was incredible! Definitely something to tick off the bucket list. We even got the opportunity to feed them raw fish which was amazing! We did the island hopping tour which was $40 each. We visited 2 local islands and a guide walked us around. He was difficult to hear at times but we got the idea and it was good to see how the locals live. We also did the dolphin safari which was complimentary with our Virgin All Inclusive. It was stormy out at sea so the trip didn’t start well and it was very rainy, but it suddenly brightened up and we saw a lot of dolphins. It was a good trip, but very long due to the unfortunate storm. I preferred and would recommend the shark watching. Facilities: The swimming pool was very clean and the water was quite warm. The swim up bar was cool! Although modest in size, the pool and lounging area was never busy. There was always plenty of loungers and tables and sometimes we were the only ones in the pool! I used the gym most days. It’s small but quite well equipped with 3 runners, 1 bike and 2 cross trainers, as well as a multi-gym and free weights. It was plenty to keep up some fitness whilst on holiday. There was a very spacious games room in the bar area which we used every day. There was a good quality pool table, as well as ping pong, darts, foosball and some board games. I highly recommend treating yourself at the spa. We had the couples Balinese massage which was on special offer at $150 for both of us from $244 (they posted a leaflet through our door after a couple of days). It was very thorough and very relaxing. The staff were very good at what they do and we left feeling incredibly relaxed. Check Out: Check out was also very swift and easy. A member of staff from reception took a Polaroid photo of us for us to keep and several members of staff waved us good bye as we left in the sea plane. Our seaplane was 2:30pm but we we able to use all the facilities including food and drinks until we left which was amazing! Staff: All the staff were exceptional and nearly everyone said hello as we walked past. I’d like to have a special mention of the garden staff too who do a fantastic job at maintaining the grounds and are always busy. Thank you to all the staff at Cinnamon for an amazing honeymoon! We can’t wait to come back one day. My Tips: 1. Bring plenty of sun cream as it’s $45 per bottle in the shop. 2. Being a few sweets or chocolate for a snack on the terrace at night. 3. Snorkel at the sunrise end of the villas. There is an incredible reef with hundreds of amazing fish and we even swam with 2 reef sharks! 4. Bring US dollars to tip the staff. They deserve it! 5. Book now to come back!

After unfortunately having to postpone and change our original honeymoon location, we decided on this place and boy aren’t we glad we did, we had the best time and the staff are so attentive, had beautiful bed decorations when we arrived at our villa, when we had our honeymoon meal and also the night before we left, the excursions are really good, my husband did more excursions then I did, I mainly topped up my tan and had a few cocktails at the swim up bar, the food is great and so much to choose from, we will definitely be coming here again, thank you so much Cinnemon Hakuraa Huraa

We stayed in water bungalow 310 from 17.09.2022 - 02.10.2022 and had the most amazing two weeks in paradise. The island is fantastic and the staff are a credit to the company - all of the staff went above and beyond during our stay, special thanks to Wilma & Janine at the main reception and Naseer our room attendant and Samir who waited on us during meal times - we were sad to say good bye but we will definitely be returning to visit again.

Absolutely amazing hotel and staff. Spent a couple of nights on the platinum island and the rest in a water villa. We preferred the water villa but both really nice. Rooms were cleaned very regularly and to a good standard. Food was superb and staff couldn’t do enough for us. Giulia and Kalhey in the diving centre were brilliant! Our waiter Adam was so nice and ultra attentive. All in all a fantastic resort in a beautiful setting, 5 stars.

We just come back from Cinnamon Hakuraa Hura Maldives and stayed in Platinum Island . I guess it's impossible to describe with words that we had a wonderful 9 night holiday on the island. We would like to thank all the staff, especially our reception manager Pradeep , our chefs Kalum and Nilantha , our bartenders Nandana and Chanaka , our restaurant responsible person Hannan , for the beauties they gave us and for making us feel special . The rooms are very big, clean and spacious, the food in the restaurant is mostly Asian cuisine, but there is a lot of variety and you can definitely find many alternatives for food. There is even a dessert room that they have specially reserved. Thank you once again and we hope to see you again next year.

Simply paradise! This was our fifth visit to Maldives, and although we might have stayed in more luxurious resorts, Hakuraa was quite unique in so many ways. The lagoon is probably the best we’ve seen! The facilities excellent. The villas on the Platinum island very well equipped and with all the modern facilities. The beach great! The spa services outstanding. However, what really makes this resort special is the STAFF. Every single one of them. Lynn, the assistant manager was great and ever assisting. Hazel so kind and responsive to all our needs. She even offered to organize us the lounge access on Velana Airpprt free of charge. We were truely touched by the gesture. Mozel, our guide to big game trips, Kemal the captain and all his crew were fantastic. Those two fishing trips were worth every penny. Tip: aleays opt for a donny. And now, to the best of the best! The restaurant and the bar on Platinum. The chefs were really amazing. They attended to all our food requirements and did that always with the smile. The food they prepared was always so delicious and fresh and nothing we asked for was too much for them. Hanan, who waited our table was so kind and welcoming. Always smiling and ready to attend in every possible way. The young guy who worked with him, whose name I did not catch unfortunately, was so very cute. polite and joyfull. Chanaka, Nandana and Latika, the barmen at the Platinum pool bar, were really special quys. Each in his own way, but all extremely friendly, polite and capable. Well done quys. You added special touch to our lazy days spent at the beach pool! Housekeeping, laundry and cleaning staff all great! And to cinclude with, whatever shortages one might find in the resorts itself are nothing comaped to the attention and the friendliness of staff! Bravo to all of you guys! You are Hakuraa biggest asset! Hope to see you again next year! Cons White roofs in the villas. If this should be resolved, this resort would be nothing but 100% perfect. Appeal to the hotel management to do sth about it.

We’ve just returned from this fabulous resort, we loved every moment. Lynn (the manager) is tireless in her role in ensuring everything is perfect- her efforts reflect in how well run this resort is. We requested a sunrise water bungalow as this side has the bettor coral etc for snorkelling- our request was met and we had 370, the end one with spectacular views. The room was lovely, the toiletries provided are plentiful and wide ranging. Tea & coffee facilities provided too. Bed and pillows very comfy, There is a pillow menu if needed. The food was a highlight, all tastes catered for and all freshly cooked. The chefs are all very welcoming and would prepare any special requests with a smile. Our table waiter Hussain was lovely, nothing too much trouble. We completed 14 dives each during this stay, Dive and Sail are an excellent company- all equipment in great condition. Giulia is an excellent dive master and took her time to ensure each dive was interesting, informative and fun, Magic is also great! Lucky worked tirelessly to ensure the equipment was maintained. The boat crew were fantastic too. Thanks to you all we had great dives and new experiences:). We will never forget the manta dive, and the nighttime dive with bioluminescence- absolutely fantastic! We loved our stay, wish it was longer…..
