(Temporarily Closed - re-opening 1st December 2019)
You will take a speedboat transfer and after just 20 minutes you arrive at this exceptional resort.
Our very own Yvonne stayed here last year and says, when we got on the luxury yacht to transfer to the island we were offered a bag with the words ‘no shoes – no news’, you are encouraged to put your shoes in there and not take them out until departure home (this is not compulsory though). Our Mr Friday always seemed to show up when we left the Villa yet was never obtrusive. One of our best meals was at the weekly Asian Street Market where the area outside the Kashiveli Restaurant is converted to serve the most amazing Asian Food.
