The staff is excellent! My husband and I stay for 6 days and 5 nights. Staff remembered us by name and were so pleasant. Food was also pretty good , maybe opening up 1 more restaurant would be great for more options. The room was just how described in the description, we enjoyed it. The water in our balcony was pretty rocky so we couldn’t explore the over water suite water too much. Two things I would also suggest is to make it one type of all inclusive (there is also a premium we were not aware of prior to booking). Secondly, add more activities for the guest (eg. shows, water aerobics, dance offs , etc). Overall we did enjoy our stay.

From the moment you step into this island you are welcomed with style. The staff at the front desk are friendly. The accommodations are upscale, best I've seen in all my travels. We stayed in an over water suite which offers postcard views, separate living room/bed area and private bath with shower and a deep tub. We paid for a Premium All Inclusive package that I truly recommend. Our room was made up daily. Our room was clean, mini bar fully stocked with premium drinks, fresh towels and chocolates. One evening we returned to find the bed decorated with Happy Birthday made of fresh flowers. The spa was heavenly, used its facility twice for massage and facials. Last but definitely not least is the resort restaurant staff and delicious cuisines. The resort counts with 3 restaurants we mainly dined at the Rehendhi Restaurant & Bar. Chef Akampa's food was incredible. His staff from the waiters, hostess, barmen & all really make you feel welcome and provided super service. They greet you with a smile and refer to you by name. It goes to show they pay attention and cater to the guest needs. Thank you Shahadath, Tharuka, sweet Ashvini, Amanda and Khair among all others for making our stay so memorable. Thank you Chef Akampa for preparing delicious and flavorful food during our stay. I mentioned I was not fan of seafood however Chef Akampa prepared us a delicious red snapper (catch by yours truly) and I was hooked. You are a true talent and master in the kitchen. A true gem.
