1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Sulawesi provided some spectacular snorkeling, and the resort was a wonderful place to stay on all aspects.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

There is no need to take a water bottle, as we were provided with several eco-friendly ones. Just take some suitable clothing to snorkel in as, as we had 3, hour-long sessions each day, the sun is very strong and it would be easy to get burnt.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All the resorts provided considerable employment in the local area, giving the locals a vested interest in looking after their environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Snorkeling the Komodo national park area and doinh house reef snorkels right in front of our resort. Beautiful healthy reef.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you want to snorkel consider the komodo alore trip. We spent 2 to three days looking at Balinese culture and villages. A lot of time just getting to placesin the interior. Height of steps at lodges and some sites like temples may be a challenge for people with knee problems. No handrails. We had two people on our trip with poor fitness or poor mobility. While I think they had a good time there were some challenges.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not sure. The Komodo resort is owned by an italian. For sure we did not reduce environmental impact ...inevitable single use plastic...we were provided metal water bottles at out last site. We did an extension to Java. We went to a local village for a tour and that benefited locals but no available filtered water...most places had to use plastic bottles

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I loved the snorkel tour. We had a little snafu with communication when we arrived and were given wrong instructio s for pick up but everything else went smoothly. Would give 5 exoect for that
