I got married at Tensing Pen on June 29, 2013. My wedding was absolutely beautiful. The wedding planner, Shanique, did a wonderful job. It was difficult to put all of my trust in someone I had never met in person until just before the wedding, but she exceeded all expectations. We had a reggae band and they were FANTASTIC.

We were there in early June to attend a wedding. The facilities were clean and had beautiful views from everywhere. Loved the outdoor shower downstairs from our room in our hut. Food was very good, as well. Our house did not have air conditioning but with the doors open and the fans on it was plenty cool. A great day...

We were here for a wedding and it couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed in the long house, which was amazing. Extremely comfortable bed, private balcony. We had so much fun jumping off the bridge and cliffs into the salty waters of their private cove. The pool was great and we also enjoyed a couple's massage. The food at...

We were there for a destination wedding. The staff were great, restaurant had wonderful food at reasonable prices. Close proximity to street food, scooter rental and convenience store. Best part was the layout...lots of places for people to hang out privately with their partner/friends or in a large group

My perspective may be a bit skewed from other's, because we were there with a wedding group that had reserved the entire resort and went all out, but regardless, I thought this place was amazing. It was also nice that we got a little discount for being part of a large group. We stayed 4 nights in Cove Cottage (very...
