This hotel is truly out of this

This hotel is truly out of this world. Obviously very expensive but it was our honeymoon and we were blown away by this hotel. We stayed in dolphin suite overlooking the lagoon and this was spectacular. Food and drink is not cheap here although you get large food portions. I would recommend people to order room service and have it set up on the balcony, this was really romantic and the service was excellent. A fridge is provided in all rooms so you are free to purchase drinks off site for consumption at hotel if you wish. Try the Royal Pine cocktail and Kona Mud Slide, they are delicious. Service was excellent and hotel facilities include everything you could wish for. Free paddle boarding lessons are available on private beach at certain times so ask for information at pool hut as this is not well advertised. The pianist and singer in the Veranda each evening is really good so have some drinks here and enjoy the chilled out atmosphere.
