no resort can be utterly perfect, and though it's no fault of the resort, the beach is not the best, and its not possible to swim in the water.
we arrived early in the morning at around 9am, and they managed to accommodate our request of early check in at around 9.30am. Because we were celebrating 2 special occasions: my wife's birthday as well as our first year anniversary, the staff also prepared a lovely orchid bouquet for my wife at check-in, as well as a beautiful chocolate cake in our room. We were well and truly pampered, with rose petals on the bed and in the bath on arrival.
We loved out garden villa, and it is truly a work of art, architecturally, with amazing attention to detail. Gorgeous. Pool was lovely and we could spend ours in our villa without a care in the world.
The whole resort is stunningly beautiful, with magazine-like photos to be taken all across the resort. The lap pool is stunning too, and the huge sofa/beds at the bar are great to laze around after swimming before sunset.
Just next door there are beach shack seafood restaurants with affordable prices (but by no means cheap). There is also a free shuttle to Turtle Village shops, where there are a few restaurants and shops. the pick of the restaurants is definitely the Coffee Club.
Overall, our stay here was truly one of the best holidays I've had.
