Cannot say enough positive things about this gem. The service is out of this world with such kind staff under the direction of Siriak. The atmosphere is so welcoming and relaxing, we lost track of days and time after our first night. Congratulations to the Chef who helped us gain a few pounds with the delicious food served. Literally nothing...

Our villa was large, spacious and well-appointed and I like that they had local amenities in the room. The décor was traditional and colonial and I like this as when I travel, it is important to me for the place I...

We had an awesome experience. The villa's were large and very comfortable. The service was outstanding - we felt very well taken care of. Michelin-Level food - and a lot of it! The entire staff was friendly and had great personality. The location is phenomenal, beautiful pool and access to an outstanding white sand beach. First rate scuba diving.

We spent four nights at this secluded paradise on a special (4 nights for price of 3). The location is ideal for rest and relaxation with no kids. We needed this after 1 1/2 months traveling through Asia. With only 6 cabins each with a private cabana, you are well-attended to by the staff; they could not be more helpful...
