It's my first time spending so much on accommodation.
Check-in took a while because it was crowded, but the experience was alright.
Then we were brought to the island by boat, and been hold on in the restaurant with a lovely welcoming drink.
When we get into our room, we realised we got the room facing the rain forest, while the opposite room is facing the sea, so we called the receptionist to ask for a change. She told us to wait for 10 mins, however we waited for 20 mins, and called back, and been asked to wait for 10 mins again. And, nothing happened.. oh well, we just leave our room to walk around.
Room was alright, bed was comfy.
We spent sometime on the small jetty which is close to the ECO center.
Pool wasn't that fantastic, but it's a good place to snap lots of photos.
Dinner was great (over pricey as it's on an island)
We had great time anyway, but i won't want to come back to this resort again, but will try another resort which is nearby.
