Luxurious its not, but it is a unique experience. The fishing has been minimised in the area which is very obvious from the abundant marine life around the island. Simply standing on my bungalow's veranda I watched so much life take place in the water. The owners have done an outstanding job to retain the environment and work in with nature to provide a getaway for a small number of people to enjoy at a time. The bungalows are simplistic but nice, food is excellent. The diving was very very good and you are not set on time limits like most dive operations, its up to the customer, not the dive master wanting to hurry the dive along. Staff were fantastic. I had reservations at first because I thought it was over priced, but after the experience and seeing the local community benefiting, I would highly recommend. Thanks again Jill/Grant and staff at Uepi.
