The overwater villa we stayed in was really nice. The view from the room is stunning. Water is very clear and the marine life was very diversed. We enjoyed snorkelling around the island. The house reefs were in good condition with countless species of fishes. We were lucky enough to see a shark of around 1.5m long and a very big sea turtle. The experience was very memorable for us. The setting of all facilities was nicely designed. The beauty of nature was embraced and celebrated by the architecture. The staff was all very friendly, helpful and conscience of your needs. The only downside to us is the limited choice of food and the high price compared to the quality. Other than that everything is perfect. One side note: we were disappointed by the behaviours some of the guests. They stepped on the coral reefs outside our deck for half an hour. Not only did their act damage the reefs, our privacy was also infringed. We also saw garbage like cans and bottles (believed to be from some of the villa) floating on the ocean. It was sad to see these irresponsible acts that destroyed the paradise!
