Review:   Wife and I went there for our Honeymoon - best. decision. ever. Private Island is off the beaten path and exactly what is in the title - PRIVATE. Other than the few guests that were staying there, maybe 10 resort people on the island at most.... Every single one of them new us by first names on the first day. Felt like home. Was absolutely beautiful, relaxing and perfect. We will be back on our 5th year Anniv. for sure!

Review:   Excellent overwater bungalows with terrific views to the lagoon. It is a quiet and beautiful place to stay and relax. The amazing coral garden is just behind the hotel and can be easily reached by the kayak provided by the hotel.

Review:   When our 15th anniversary was approaching, we didn't know if celebrating by doing a gathering or taking a one of a kind trip. We are extremely satisfied we decided to take this trip. This one of our many bucket list items finally checked off. Espectacular view. Snorkeling, kayaking, surf board, Vista point, private beach, bungalows over water and inland...... And much more. Best place to pause your busy life and enjoy breath taking moments.

Review:   We went on our honeymoon in 2012 and loved it! We stayed in an over water bungalow and the views were breath taking. Perfect size room for us, loved the rainfall shower, patio was amazing with sun tanning deck and water access. Snorkeling equipment was included and tons of fun. The complementary breakfast was wonderful and the staff was very friendly!!!
