This resort is a little farther away from mainland, so you don't see other establishments around and there is less human containment. The huts are comfortable, albeit a little dark. The shower / restroom... More

We stayed at Viwa resort for 6 nights and it greatly exceeded our expectations. If you want a holiday to relax at a beautiful beach with really blue water, either reading a book, listening to music or watching a movie on your tablet, then this is the place to visit. Dont bother with the other resorts. We booked a holiday... More
