Where do I start !! From the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty, the welcome drink was needed after the long-haul flight, we obviously knew what the island looked like but seeing it in the flesh put a huge smile on our faces, it was just amazing. The water villa and the view was just like stepping into...

Our 9th visit to Athuruga and it's still a wonderful place to visit. The reef has suffered a little over the last 12 months, though the fauna is still extensive and fantastic to see. The staff are as pleasant as ever, the food probably even better than previous years. We were in a water villa and feel they are just...

We visited Diamonds Athuruga during the peak season but the island was very quiet and peaceful. The island itself was very beautiful with nice beach and beautiful water villas of white color which looked stunning against blue sea and sky. The house reef was not so healthy. They were mostly broken and bleached. The sea life was out of this...
