Pef Island Resort

What a gorgeous resort… Really, any of you who love diving and are after a luxury holiday, go there! The resort is top end but very intimate and relaxed (maximum 18 guests). The owner is Swiss and the staff a mix of Europeans and Indonesians. The food was delicious, the diving some of the best in the world, the location stunning and everyone was very friendly. Thoroughly recommend! 🌴
