As mentioned in the last post, our hotel rep was waiting with a sign as we came out of security. He collected our bags, tagged them and we did not see them till we got to our room.
The crew was trying to tell us which resorts these were but it was so hard to hear them over the engine noise. So
There was a rep waiting for all of us at the dock and we hopped into the buggy and were driven to the chech-in
area. A young fellow by the name of Asanka was assigned to help us check-in.
Once the check-in process was completed, Asanka said he would take us to our room since it was a far walk. Before
that, I requested that we stop by the Dive centre so that we could book our dives for the next 2 days. He was more
than accomodating and we spent the next 20 minutes booking our dives. After that, he took us to our room and
explained the different areas we passed along the way.
Got to our room where Asanka showed us the in’s and out’s and he left us to our own devices.
A really funny note – there was WIFI available only in the hotel lobby area. It was extemely hilarious watching people camping around the lobby area and using their devices to connect to the outside world. Guess its really hard to unplug sometimes.
On our last night, we had a bit of an ant infestation issue. We came back from dinner and saw the floor littered slightly with dead ants. I would assume they could not handle the AC as we left it low during our dinner. A quick call to reception resolved the issue. The guy came and sprayed down the room and bathroom with ant repellant and swept all the dead bodies out. #firstworldproblems.
Last but not least, here are a few pictures from our dives. Overall opinion, I was not impressed but the 2nd day of diving made up for the experience as I caught a few pics of the moray eels and lionfish. Did see a turtle but it was far out and could not get a good pic. Also, I did see a couple sharks swmimming at the bottom of the reef but
