After our honeymoon plans to Bora Bora were cancelled at very late notice we can honestly say it was probably a blessing in disguise!
As many have said on here the welcome from every single one of the staff was absolutely first class! Mark and Libby were great hosts and seem to have perfected the art of always being there to chat and offer advicve while never being to overburdening like so many other hosts tend to be.
We stayed in a lagoon loft and the views were absolutly fantastic, picture postcard stuff! We never wanted to leave the room with those views and could just sit and look out over the lagoon and the mountains for hours!!
We made full use of the free bikes and kayaks to expore the whole island which is well worth doing as the views from up in the mountains are exceptional. There is also an abundance of wildlife on the island which can been seen on almost every trip out of the lodge.
We were always tempted to try out the other restautrants on the Island but never did as the menu at Capella changed daily and the standard of the food was continually top class. This was the best place we have ever eaten!!
This is one place that we would always go back too. Top Class Lodge, top class food, top class hosts and a fantastic little island that we hope never changes!
