A very well conceived island resort. Staff are very friendly and competent although the figure of a leading manager wasn’t visible during our stay. Food is very good and so is the spa. The beach could be nicer. The Cockatoos are good fun and will pick anything left outside on the

Is it currently raining all day every day there? Or just a shower or two? Still good weather to go? Forecast looks grim.
When we went last month it did rain most days however not for long and it was still warm and then you had periods of sunshine. It didnt stop us totally enjoying our time there. If you want totally rain free this probably isnt the location for you.

Is the use of the beach equipment included in the price (paddle boards etc)?
Yes it is included in the price, you can be taken out for a tour in a small boat if they have time. They are so accommodating, nothing is a problem. You just have to ask and if they are free they will do it or they will try and book you in for a later time/day. If you are not sure pls just ask. They will advise you on all matters.
