Private Paradise

Leicester, United Kingdom

Just wonderful! Accommodation is outstanding, as are all the team members! From the chap who looked after our room (sorry I’ve forgotten his name) to the resort manager, everyone was warm, friendly and helpful. The island is just a tropical paradise! My only slight negative would be that I felt the conditions that the animals for consumption were kept in (pigs, cattle, chickens etc) wasn’t great and should be improved. All were too cramped, especially the pigs, plus the cattle area was just a filthy enclosure and most were in full sun.

Best Holidays, best Resort EVER

Zurich, Switzerland

To honor our experience with Denis Private Island, I would need at least one or two extra stars! Everything was perfect, the island is beautiful from beaches and the lagoon to the tropical Forest, the conservation work and high degree of self sustainability, the attention to detail on the island, the gardens and especially the Chalets is outstanding. Flora and Fauna seem to be in balance and therefore thrife and the underwaterworld is beautiful. But the best is the outstanding staff, literally everybody gave everything to make our stay so memorable, made everything possible and was there when we needed something but never in a obtrusive way, THANK YOU!!! We also loved the culinary experience, always fresh and delicious food mostly from the island or the ocean, greatly mixed tastes and never too much choice. The creole night is a highlight. The Chalets are so nicely located near/on the beach, large enough for a family, with semi-outdoor bathroom, have everything needed and are very cosy, the style embeds perfectly with the rest of the island and its wild heart. Ruhul looked after us and the room perfectly, his towel-animals got our kids excited every day. So Denis comes highly recommended by us, we will certainly be back sometimes!!!
