We felt like we were staying with friends on their private island oasis. Charlie and his team including the beautiful Alice, Monica and B were more like new friends than resort staff. The food was amazing, the company of other guests was lovely around the Firepit each night. It was so good to simply unplug technology and relax and unwind in nature. Thank you, we will definitely be back.

What a beautiful location! The staff were so friendly and considerate, providing amazing service and making sure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. The room was immaculate and the food was absolutely amazing. The chefs were very considerate to any food intolerances we had. A lot of time was spent in the pool, and we'd love to come back sometime out of stinger season to do some snorkeling! The limited number of villas in the resort made the experience very intimate and secluded. Elysian was the highlight of our honeymoon and we will definitely be back, we highly recommend staying here!
