Absolutely amazing resort!
Absolutely amazing resort. My wife and I stayed for 1 week and could not have asked for a better stay. Pictures do not do it justice and the resort is beautiful. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Over water villa was spacious, quiet and had water access. For the most part the restaurant food was good. Broad range of activities on the island but they did tend to fill up quickly. Access to the resort was easy via seaplane and was a highly recommended experience. We would definitely stay here again.
