Idyllic island, far from the madding crowd. Beautiful wall dives with corals of every description and plenty of fish life. Good vis, warm sea, what more could one wish for? Spent the evenings sitting on the beach, wriggling our toes in the sand, glass of wine in hand, talking about the day's diving and watching the flying fish and the sun going down over the sea. Everything possible was done to make us feel welcome, happy and confortable. It was a really special and magical holiday and it was unanimous that we would all love to come back.

Situ is this beautiful tropical Island in the middel of now where and you can have the whole island for just 6 to 12 people and it does not cost an arm and leg. I have never seen so many beautiful wall dives, had so many sea food and felt so much like a rich millionare. Diving off a Catamaran is so comfortable and accept all the great dives we had in the day I had the best night dive ever. In summary it is luxury, beauty, exclusivity, and great value for money.

The six of us had a really enjoyable relaxing experience at Situ Island Resort. It is quite special having an Island to yourselves and a dedicated happy team who are there when you need them. Transfers are very good on the Situ II Cat even in the windy conditions we had. The welcome is genuine as you wade ashore :-) The food was great especially considering the logistics and the calamari and crab were big hits with our group. The cleaning and helping staff don’t speak much English but are so friendly and eager to please that if they get it wrong you can only laugh and ad it to the experience! The manager and his assistant and caterer were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation is rustic but absolutely all you need in this open air environment and

I could have done without the 'Pemba' airport experience, but as soon as our group had cleared immigration and parted with $80, we found ourselves in the final frontier of Pemba! The sea was blue and sparkling inviting us to frolic....the boat trip from Pemba to Situ was the start of an eventful week as we spotted hump back whales within 20 minutes of the journey. We were met at the resort by the manager/s and their children who throughout our stay proved to be welcoming and good hosts. Situ has a rustic feel to it and the accommodation was (for want of a better description) a hut on the beach. The rooms had plenty of space, showers (solar heated water) and little verandas which had chairs, bed (should you want to sunbath, snooze in the afternoon or indeed they would have put

As soon as your plane arrives at Pemba International airport you know that this place is going to be different from any other island resort. A boat arrives at Club Naval at the Pemba Beach Hotel jettys to fetch you. The ride is a one hour ride in the open sea. We arrived at the island of Situ, where we were made to feel very welcome by the manager, his wife and the other staff. They stood in warm, ankle-deep water to greet us. By then it was lunchtime and we were treated to culinary delights, such as a crab and cashew nut salad. Delicious! The manager is at your disposal when ever you need him. He will take you scuba diving and snorkeling. He will also take you deep sea fishing and take you on tours of the island at a moment's notice! Situ island also offers guests other
