The facilities are good although the dining area did look a bit tired. The food was good but not brilliant. We usually had the buffet dinner which gave... More

This place totally helped us beat the daily humdrum with a lot of close-to-nature peace and quiet. I would totally recommend it even to those who, just like me, would otherwise hesitate over the idea of spending a vacation in a luxurious property. This property left no stone unturned in keeping me and my friends constantly preoccupied with a gamut... More

Stayed for a couple nights recently as part of a small corporate group. The location and the resort were excellent. The rooms were large, and had decent-sized sit-outs. The beach with the aggressive sea on one side, and the silent, beautiful back waters on the other make for a great contrast! The resort is very well maintained, although rooms showed... More
