We loved our stay at Manava and would absolutely come back! We stayed here for 5 nights for the 1st half of our honeymoon before headed to Bora Bora. While we certainly loved it, there were some points that weren’t as high as others. I’ll go through pros and cons… Pros: - The reception staff is absolutely amazing. From the moment you arrive, you feel thought of and cared for because of how they greet you. - Free non-motorized water sports included (snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc) - Restaurants on property were delicious and had vegan options! - All the staff was very hardworking and truly did not want you to do anything while you’re on vacation. If we stood up, they would ask us if everything was okay and tell us to sit. Cons: - All. The. Bugs. I understand that it’s tropical but there were so many ants in our bathroom and one night we got home after dinner to a ton of gnats in our bathroom. Housekeeping cleans with the doors open, which really encourages bugs to come in. - While overall the staff was amazing, we found ourselves waiting a long time if we needed to order another drink, get the check, etc. - Not specific to this resort, but it’s a shame that you can’t enjoy a meal without others smoking cigarettes around you. I really wish they’d have smoking areas so people couldn’t smoke at the pool, in restaurants, etc. Secondhand smoke causes cancer, and inhaling others pollutants isn’t the way I want to spend my vacation. It’s also not very consistent with their “commitment” to the environment. Overall, we would stay here again because the pros definitely outweighed the very minor cons, but I do think there’s areas the resort can improve.

Wow, Wow, Wow!!! Very highly recommended! This was our "last Hoorah" with the original 4 of us immediate family, before the 18 & 21yrs olds are off and doing their own thing. We got a premium over the water bungalow and a pool garden bungalow along with the breakfast and dinner package thru Costco. Worth EVERY penny!!! Traditional, authentic, luxurious, quiet, respectful and beautiful beyond words. Service was friendly, professional and informative always ready and willing to help. Bar food and drinks were good portions, great quality and priced equally to other resorts. Pool/Water hours actually were fine - it insured that no guest was drunk or disruptive in the evenings. Most guests even the children were quiet, respectful, friendly and just there to relax and enjoy the scenery not a party environment. With that said, resort offered special entertainment and traditional dinner nights the were included in your stay. Buffet breakfast was decent, was slightly disappointed that the crepes featured in the advertisements were not available but good variety of food offered and definitely enough to fill the bellies before the daily excursions. Excursions offered were diverse and for all ends of the budget. Ones we chose were amazing, professional and enjoyable. Prompt and safe transport to all excursions. Convenient location to local markets and eateries. Will recommend highly! Can't wait to come back!!!
