Airline- Jetstar – DON”T fly Jetstar. On the way out (the day after the crash) they ran out of blankets and food and the entertainment system was not working. Longest Flight in history. Everyone cheered when the plane landed. To be fair coming back was not so bad.
Accommodation – Mom Tri Royale was fantastic. Loved the ocean pool the views, location and the people.
Treetops – very beautiful resort, perfect for a honeymoon.
