company. Thirty couples to be exact. Time will be told by the
moon, the stars and the tide.

the reef , across a still lagoon. And there is a palm shaded
Bangaram. Living in thatched spacious huts with all comforts.

even Scuba diving to see the enchanted coral garden.

the a wide seafood - topped cuisine & chore spirits and the
people who look after you. It is the ultimate gateway.

uninhabited. The lagoons around the island are beautiful and
clear, offering excellent opportunities for swimming ,
