What a beautiful location! The staff were so friendly and considerate, providing amazing service and making sure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. The room was immaculate and the food was absolutely amazing. The chefs were very considerate to any food intolerances we had. A lot of time was spent in the pool, and we'd love to come back sometime out of stinger season to do some snorkeling! The limited number of villas in the resort made the experience very intimate and secluded. Elysian was the highlight of our honeymoon and we will definitely be back, we highly recommend staying here!

Unique and Amazing!!
My wife and I both had an amazing 4 nights in this resort and we both wish we had more time. Laureth and Charlton both did a super awesome job and went above and beyond. We will definitely consider going back to this unique and one of a kind resort.
