Excellent! Highly recommend this service. Received a message via WhatsApp imminently and the lady was very helpful to accommodate to my hotels requirements. Communication was excellent. My therapist Putu was extremely professional, respectful and careful towards myself and the hotels property. It was a perfectly executed massage and definitely relieved pain. I would book it everyday if my hotel allowed me to! But I only got given permission for a one off time :( Thank you for the service, bless you all.

The team were very punctual, easy to follow, very friendly, and were mindful about the sealife. They took photos and videos for those on the group and sent them over afterwards. We were lucky to see the manta rays ans then we went to 2 other locations + a complimentary buffet lunch + kayaking. They offered water teas and coffees throughout the day. The boat was not too busy. Overall very well organised.
