    Thanks to Bob for a great stay. My fiancée and I came for two nights and loved it, such a beautiful island with a few things to explore. Great for a break to chill and switch off, the food is amazing and Bob's cocktails are legendary with local ingredients!

    We spent an amazing time at Dryft. Where to start? The bungalows look impressive with a nice view of the beach, they have mosquito nets and a ceiling fan. The main hall is an impressive architectural build and you will definitely want to hang out on the second floor to chill and enjoy your island life. Bob and everyone else is super friendly, always ready to chat and make sure we were satisfied. There are some impressive views for snorkeling just in front of the main hall. Just ~100m off the beach, on the right side of the buoy (ask Bob). The shared pick up was very well organised, the driver was friendly and then the boat ride was short and just as pleasant. It is glamping so expect showers and bathrooms were "outdoors-y" if that makes sense, but you're not spending your vacation in the bathroom, are you? I want to thank Bob and Dryft for an unforgettable experience!

    We stayed 2 nights in early August and didn't want to leave. The island is beautiful and remote, which gives you a real sense of disconnection, however it is only a short 15 minute ride from the mainland. We booked the "Lux Tipi" so cannot comment on the other rooms, but we loved ours. All the photos online show you how amazing this place looks, but what really stands out above all else is the staff. The food cooked by Chef Leo was excellent and fresh - they use ingredients sourced from, or very close to the island. Bob and Ang were the real stars though. They made us feel so welcome and are such fun to spend time with. We feel Ang went above and beyond her duties - she took us on a tour for the afternoon of the sunken WW2 ship and we walked around the island. The following day Ang took us to the lagoon which was beautiful too. Bob always has a smile on his face and is always making jokes. As much as we were sad to leave paradise, we were more upset about leaving behind such friendly and welcoming people. Thank you; we'll be back.
