Mimi G
Good & Blessed afternoon, We are going for our Honeymoon I am overexcited we are going to the water suite & requested the indulgence package. Could you kindly advice on the indulgence package? is it all inclusive for all the restaurants, food & drinks (alcohol), and what about the room service & mini bar? Tipping can we take US$ or do we have to exchange? I was looking at island escape, the snorkeling and most definitely those sand made private sunset dinners I see omg just fantasy dream I'm sadden that there are no drones allowed personally I do not even have one yet but being that our suite is isolated I have seen beautiful honeymoon memories from drones showing just their personal stay not including other villas. I am now looking for a reasonable 360 camera and the Olympus t4 which I use to own before one of their older models and was great for underwater pictures & videos. Looking forward to your feedback God Bless
