A relaxed and intimate resort, well placed for nearly 50 dive sites and for pure, undisturbed escapism.

Set in a stunning lagoon, this pretty island is comfortable and natural. There are no children, the staff are excellent, and there’s a quiet yet friendly atmosphere. The result is that many guests return year after year.

The colourful house reef offers wonderful snorkelling and there are numerous dive sites within an hour by boat; in fact there are 15 sites within 15 minutes. For an adrenalin rush, the choice of fun watersports includes parasailing; or for a more leisurely approach to the water, canoes can be hired for a self-guided hop on/off snorkelling trip.

For dining, you’ll find a range of meal plans available, from Full Board to All Inclusive Gold. The main Falhu restaurant is sand-floored, overlooking the ocean with a deck on stilts over the water, and the fine dining restaurant, Aqua, sits on the main jetty, where the chef often comes out to chat to guests. The open-air Thundi Bar on the beach is a great spot for cocktails as the sun goes down, and in the evenings, the low-key Kandu Bar is the hub of the island. The wooden Beach Villas, Jacuzzi Beach Villas and Premium Jacuzzi Beach Villas are set over two beaches, facing northeast or southwest. Overwater, Jacuzzi Water Villas and Ocean Jacuzzi Water Villas have steps down into the ocean.
