We stayed for 6 days / nights and had the most fantastic holiday. The resort is superb, the food is amongst the best we have ever had, our beach bungalow was even better than the photos we had seen and was kept spotlessly clean and the snorkelling inside and outside the house reef was stunning. However, what really made this...

Royal Island Spa and Hotel is a fantastic, peaceful and tranquil haven, surrounded by flowers, shrubs and shady trees. The undersea world of this island is wonderful with colourful fish and stingrays etc. all around the island, don’t forget to bring your snorkel and beach shoes. My wife had her birthday while we were there and they made a special...

Very beautiful island, great opportunities for snorkeling and diving as the marine life in this part of the islands is very rich and exciting. The hotel is not really a 5 star hotel but more like 4 or 4.5. Nevertheless, the service is excellent, staff is very helpful and friendly. Food is good and diverse. The rooms are not exactly...

Good recreational options. House reef was wonderful for snorkeling. Beach was nicer than anything we've seen in Mexico or the Caribbean. Only downside was the long wait (3 hours)...

If you are spending a time in this resort, I strongly recommend you to visit the Spa. I had a couple of massage there, one lasted 2 hours and I was wrapped in a real bamboo leaf after having my body treated with a scrub and a super moisturising cream!! In the end I spent 10 minutes within a steamer...

Loved that all rooms open onto the beach, however some rooms have beach are as well as shaded area in front of them and some one have shaded areas. We were lucky to have both. The East side of the island was most windy than the West side and again we were lucky to be on the sheltered side (but...

Excellent location for snorkeling. Very good beach and reef was close to reach and explore underwater world. Quite good service and nice stuff, delicious food. The island is quite big, but not so crowded due to the private beach villas serviced twice a day. Just had great time to relax and enjoy with my partner in crime. The only thing...
