    Water Lovers is really something else; private, excellent service, friendly staff, superb cottages and good food. From your bed you can see the blue Indian ocean. This is far from the crowds and with no noisy pool activities.More

    ps: regarding the coldest period of the year, considering we're just few degrees of latitude below the equator and that you cannot talk about cold when you have from 24 to 27 degrees Celsius, it would be around June/July .
