Best vacations in a long time!

Pros: All the staff, including the ones involved on the extra daily trips were always really nice and helpful. The bungalow room was perfect.
Cons: We didn't like that out of the 5 restaurants we could use only one and that we had one table designated to us since the beginning.
Location: We did the three site visit, to see the whale shark; the "looking for dolphins", diving experience and a lot of sport activities at the hotel.
If you need to rest, enjoy some peace and quite (and sun!), this is the place to be. :D

Alle meine erwartungen wurden erfüllt und sogar übertroffen :) es war eine wunderschöne Zeit in diesem kleinen paradies. Die Angestellten haben alle einen spitzen Job gemacht und es war super organisiert .. von Anfang bis Ende. Diese Insel ist im Vergleich zu anderen echt riesig und man hat keine Industrie Inseln als "nachbarn" die einen die Aussicht versauen wie es z.b in Flughafen oder Hauptstadt nähe der Fall wäre .. es gibt sehr viel Aktivitäten und Plätze zum aufhalten, neben sämtlichen Wassersportlichen aktivitäten wie Kanu fahren, schnorcheln, windsurfen, surfen, kitesurfen, jetski, catamaran, segeln etc. abendlich Strandbar/partys show programm, Kinoleinwand. Badminton Tennis Volleyball Golf .. ich denke selbst in 2 vollen Wochen hat man noch nicht alles gemacht ^^ in ca 10h fussmarsch kan man innen und aussen die ganze Insel erkunden und es gibt auch viele Tiere zu sehen. Für Kinder gibt es Spielplätze. Es ist wie ein kleiner Themenpark aufgebaut und an jeder Ecke gibt es etwas zu entdecken. Den Spa Bereich fand ich ehrlich gesagt ein bisschen übertrieben teuer und man hat auch gesehen das nicht grade viele Gäste dieses Angebot genutzt haben .. oft ist es so das man sowas am Ende noch anhängt wenn noch Geld Budget übrig sein sollte aber die chance sich einen Sonnenbrand zu holen ist natürlich sehr hoch :) und mit Sonnenbrand würde ich nie eine Massage oder Körperbehandlung machen lassen. Es gibt sehr tolle touren und Ausflüge die man planen .. oh keine Zeichen mehr
