The staff is very friendly and simply amazing! Our first waiter name Tara at the Main restaurant was great! He always greeted us and made sure our dining experience was great. The restaurant for the water bungalows provided a phenomenal service. From the time you enter and until you leave they made sure everything was great! This is a great resort to stay. I highly recommend the water bungalow.

מקום מדהים ביופיו. החופים הכי מקסימים שראינו. הוילות על המים זו חוויה מדהימה אך גם הוילות על החוף כיפיות. הבריכה הציבורית מקסימה. אפשר לשחק טניס, כדורסל, פינג-פונג, ביליארד וגולף. האוכל היה מגוון אך לא מהמשובחים.
