  1. Yuliya / June 10, 2014

    • Conception of Resort is ONLY ADULTS, they don’t accommodate children. That’s why you feel quit, relax and calm atmosphere
    • It has good green well-planned territory
    • Dine around – you can use restaurant in nearest resorts (ANANTARA VELI/ NALADHU). What is why you feel that territory of resort is so huge. A lot of restaurants/bars of different cuisine for different wishes
    • A lot of activity (not only water-sports and also tennis court, badminton court, gym, billiard, table tennis, beach volleyball, beach football, yoga etc.)
    • Rooms are very romantic, private and modern design. All rooms are very spacious
    • Not well house reef

    Водные виллы выглядят устаревшими и требуют реновации, понравились водные виллы с бассейном и видом на закат! Территория так же слегка запущена, но понравился бар с бассейном и террасой, где можно приятно провести время в течении дня и вечер с музыкой. В тайском ресторане мы вкусно поужинали, сытые и довольные отплыли на лодке в свой Dhigu отдыхать. Так же понравился тайский спа. Еще я так поняла, что своего домашнего рифа у отеля нет и нас возили на снорклинг в 50ти минутах пути на катере и это было что-то потрясающее! Мы плавали с черепахой, видели стаи красочных рыб и сам риф порадовал свой живой растительностью, в отличии от многих других домашних рифов, которые уже мертвые или находятся в фазе сна.
