If you're looking for peace and quiet was at the wrong place, very many families with smaller children. Majority of asians very loud. 0 (we have a lot of money for this location and we are disappointed. The room cleaning took place every day (wiped was only the first two days) otherwise, the towels and once only short over looked. We have it then with tip but tried therefore it was also not better. The food is varied and tasted good but everything in the asian visitors. You get the feeling you sit in a large cafeteria everything was very ... noisy. So you can never sit long and its wine. The waiters were, after you tip them are very attentive and try. Our conclusion we will the island again Bewertung lesen

    Transfer with the seaplane 25 minutes - then the Dhoni further to the island - everything was very well organized. The beach chairs are from the beach bungalow 10 metres away and for each bungalow has its own beach chairs. Breakwater on an island side - there is no beach available. By lagunenbungalows is a round the island on the beach was unfortunately not possible. Reef for snorkelling very good.

    There was a main restaurant with varying theme nights. Food was very good with lots of fresh products especially fresh fish and live cooking. Buffet was always immediately refilled. Dessert buffet partially moderately. There is also an indian restaurant, which we did not test however. Tip for the service helps the one or the other waiters on the cracks. The waits for the drinks are for the most part within limits. Good selection of wines in the restaurant, enjoy premium libations at the bar.

    We had a beach bungalow. All modern and very clean. The closet was much too small. Air conditioning, good bed, nespresso machine available. Outdoor bath some ants, but otherwise no bugs. Cleanliness was okay.

    The room boy was twice a day there and tried very hard. The service is in the restaurant and in the bars very well. Sometimes the wait was a bit long, but from time to time a small tip works wonders. With english one comes through everywhere well.

  • Sport und Unterhaltung
    5.0

    No entertainment - but was very pleasant. Beach: nice, but not idyllic, since the beach chairs in the beach-bungalows but quite tight next to each other are placed. 3 times per week live music, of which 1 time disco evening.
