Enjoyed four nights with my daughter in this beautiful island resort. Everyday we wake up to a spectacular view of the lagoon. Breakfast is a morning delight. The day is spent, swimming in the azure waters or snorkling in the reefs or just lazing on the sand. Yoga or spa afternoons is very relaxing. We end our day with dinner...
