    I would like to add LikuLiku to the list ( We were there last year for our honeymoon and it was amazing. Choose from a beachfront bungalow or an overwater bure. We stayed in both and I can’t decide which is better, they’re both quite different experiences. The food was great, the staff was very attentive and I would go back in a heartbeat! I’m not a “beach person” but I didn’t want to leave. I highly recommend it.
