Reviewed 29 April 2008

Kapalai is one of the most beautiful places on earth and I feel so lucky to have spent time there.

It has all been said by previous reviewers , the over water bungalows are beautifully appointed and designed. The bathrooms hav viewing platforms so cleaning your teeth watching ( or being watched by) sting rays is pretty amazing.
Turtles were frquent visitors to the resort at night.

I don't dive (yet) but had an amazing time snorkelling .There were scores of turtles and reef sharks all incredibly relaxed with people.

Some previous reviewers commented about the food and felt that it was not so good. I really disagree and feel that it could not have been bettered ! The very best use was made of fab local ingredients , fresh veggies lightly steamed or stir fried , a couple of salad dishes and a couple of great fish dishes for lunch or dinner.

Kapalai is unmissable. I skipped going back to a resort in KK and flew straight back to London from here. Was so pleased to have done so .
