We travelled to Chaaya Reef for our honeymoon and stayed in one of the water bungalows, absolutely fabulous. The restaurant and bar are great Donald looks after you so very well. Twice our bed was decorated with individually placed flowers to make a pattern it must have taken an age. The beach is good and the snorkelling out of this world, didn't try the scuba diving but plenty of people did. One of the highlights was the sundown fishing trip where my wife caught a huge Red Snapper which we ate the next night. One lady on the boat caught a sail fish which needed all 3 of the crew to land.
To sum up an excellent resort for a honeymoon as long as all you want to do is lie on the beach with an occasional dip in the ocean.
One word of advice take the sea plane and not the speed boat as we had a 2 hour transfer in very rough weather that was hoorendous.
