  • The Spa Village is one of the best spas that I’ve experienced in Asia.
  • The sunset cruise on a private yacht makes your evenings one of the most memorable
  • Perfect for couples and families.  I wouldn’t usually agree with the mixed concept, but I had no problems with noisy kids
  • No cars are allowed on island, which means no polluting noises
