7 days residence package

This is a resort which caters for all. The resort is quite large with many villas. We did not feel it at all. The resort offers so many things we were just enjoying our 7 days stay. The best part of the resort 1: The staff, they were unbelievably kind, helpful & understanding. Look for Mr. Eugen. A wonderful human being. He knows his responsibility 2: The resort has 7 restaurants. We tried each restaurant & it was an amazing experience. Specially Fisherman’s Cove. 3: The sea villa is really beautiful. That is where we stayed. 4: The massage at Spa Village was TOP class. We had massages & different kind of Bath every other day. It was very relaxing. 5: The beach, yes it is small & it is in the other side of the resort but still beautiful. Shuttles are provided to take guest around. Getting there was not a problem. 6: swimming pools 25m long I loved it. Swimming every morning. Thank you to all the staff members who made our holiday memorable. We’ll definitely visit again.

The most beautiful hidden gem

Isle of Man, United Kingdom

I am looking through the feedback and I am absolutely astonished that anyone would rate this place as anything but excellent! We stayed here for our Honeymoon and we are so glad we did. We chose the Hill Villa and the views were phenomenal! Every day we would watch the Hornbills and wildlife flutter around below, it was great. The service was fantastic, the staff were amazing and the setting and food were truly breath-taking. The little private island was a slice of paradise, we didn't want to leave! We made some friends on the island, Aris (Jungle Walk Tour Guide) - he is so passionate about the island and it's conservation which is beautiful and is a breath of fresh air. And Darwin (Uncle Lim's, Food & Beverages Management) - he was so lovely, every night we pretty much went to Uncle Lim's to eat...and he made jokes with us about eating Calamansi Chicken again (by the way you need to eat it. It's another level!). Our experiences in the spa were second to none and we now feel we can never get another massage or spa treatment again because it won't be up to par! There was one gentlemen (I'm sorry we didn't get his name) who worked in Royal Bay Beach Club and also worked on the Sunset Cruise experience. He was fantastic, he really helped me on the boat as I do get sea sick sometimes...I know... but he gave me some oil to rub on my head to reduce seasickness. And it did work! Every member of staff we came across were so helpful and lovely. The lady in the Hornbill Cafe, the gentleman on the shuttle bus who remembered where we were staying, to everyone who waved us goodbye when we left, the people who made us a breakfast packed lunch because we left early on a private chartered speedboat to catch our flight, the list could go on! We are so glad we chose PLR for our Honeymoon and we look forward to seeing the little Island again for a special anniversary in a few years! Thank you so much for making our experiences and memories so special. P.s. we recommend you do both Jungle walks as they are amazing! Kindest regards, Natasha Molyneux-Smith
