    The staff where amazing, so helpful, friendly and happy. The staff we encountered made every possible attempt to accommodate us at every turn, we wanted for nothing at Bunga Raya Resort. The resort was breathtaking, we stayed in a villa with an amazing view overlooking the bay. Our villa was huge, with the largest King bed I have stayed in. It was very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The grounds where filled with wildlife and hundreds of hibiscus flowers, we enjoyed just walking around the grounds and taking it all in. Snorkeling in the bay was very safe and very enjoyable. The boat ride into the resort was well organised and the boat drivers made every attempt to make our trip as smooth as possible, the sea was a little rough on one trip, but the driver took note and made every attempt for a smooth ride.
