This island is truly amazing, from the minute you arrive you are completely taken care of. We had one of the over water bungalows and was the wow factor to be able to wake up and see the ocean from your bed, laying on the sun lounger and watching some amazing fish just swimming past was incredible. We would like to give a couple of special thank you's, firstly to Iqbal our personal waiter who was always ready to serve us and got to know our drinks order by the second day. The second thank you is to Mahameed in the bar at night, he is the most cheerful person at his work that we have ever come across he is a credit to the company. But we really have had an amazing time and would recommend this island, the snorkeling is great you never get tired of watching so many different species, or just kicking back and lazing on the white sand.
