Beach villa
Wonderful refitted rooms, completed in January 2017. Private beach and pool for residents. Delicious food. The resort staff cannot do enough to ensure you enjoy your stay. Day trips snorkeling and scuba diving available.

Paradise island and resort
This was a great place to be. Everything was just perfect. The hospitality of the staff is great. They really want you to have a good time. At the restaurant you could also ask for things beside the menu and the cook would look what was possible. The guests of the resort have their own private beach and swinmingpool. You can use the towels of the resort so not necessary to bring your own. The resort is not too large and that is exactly what gives it a charm. We stayed 4 nights and everybody knew us. The room was perfect also. Looking out at the beach and with a large bathroom. At daytime the island has a lot of day visitors (depending on the day and season how many) but after 5 pm the island is deserted except for the residents of the resort. We did also the jungle track to the sunset point and that was allright and took aprox 50 minutes. And there are possibilities to snorkel and dive.

Nice rooms, but over priced and very crowded island with trash
We just stayed for a night on the Manukan island and were happy it was just one night. The diving was very good, professional and well organized! But you have to expect the island being crowded by Chinese tourist and unfortunately with this comes also beaches with lots of trash on it. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the rooms are very nice. The resort has a private beach, but no one controlled who accessed it and while we were there lots of big groups of Chinese came and took pictures of us, what was really annoying and left a bad taste of the stay. The restaurant has very limited numbers of foods available, but they were very helpful with getting me vegetarian options. Drinks are expensive, I recommend bringing your own bottle of wine. Of the 12 cocktails available they had 2 we could actually order. All over experience: it’s expensive for how they make you believe it’s a private island and then it’s just crowded by houndreds of tourists. They could have a more private beach and more 5-star like beaches and food options. If I would have paid 50 usd for the stay I would be satisfied, but not for 130 usd...

Dive & Stay Package
We stayed at this resort as part of our Scuba Diving + Stay package. We really love the island and also our Villa! Our villa is on the second floor with a nice beach view. Room is spacious with complete amenities. We don't mind the weak internet connection as we connected with nature more! We also love the local foods offered in their restaurants. As for their staff, they are accommodating and prompt on addressing our requests.

Paradise with a trade-off
The island is a very beautiful place on earth and the resort fits there well and is very nice. The stuff is very friendly and tries to make your stay as nice as possible. The trade-off is the huge amount of people coming from KK every day for a day visit. They leave a lot of waste that then in the evening is collected by the hotel stuff. The early mornings and also the time after 5pm, when the day visitors are gone, is awesome and very quiet. The jungle trail and the path to the sunset point are also very nice, especially the jungle trail should not be missed.
