The island is small, you can snorkel around in 1 hour! We had a very nice bungalow on top of the cliff. One site sunset, other site sunrise! Great!!! There was always a nice breeze, so we didn't need a fan. The bugalow gad a Mandi shower, water in a bucket, and the friendly Captain Water filled up every day... More

If you like a cheap stay on a nice island, this is a good place to go. Just 150.000 rp ( eur 10 ) p.p.p.d. Including 3 meals. Standard cabins on the beach or on the rocks. Only the food is a bit boring. Every day for lunch and diner plain rice and dry fish.

We came to Poya Lisa having already stayed in 2 places and having seen two more. Out of all those places, this turned out to be our favourite one. Let me start with saying this is a basic place running for the last several years and so the bungalows are not brand new (but are decent and quite clean) and... More

We were for 5 days on this wonderful place. The cottages are simple but has everything you need and has a balkon with a splendid view. The meals (mostly fresh fish) are good. Snorkeling direct around the small I land is possible. Snorkeling trips to other places are cheap and easy to arrange. The sea life is the best we... More

Before we visited, I've read many exciting reviews of this place, so we were little bit disappointed by the end. For how small the place is, they managed to squeeze many cottages on it. It's basically just two pieces of rock connected by a line of beach. There are a few cottages on one of the rocks, restaurant and kitchen... More

Sorry, dear budget-tourists, the travelling-concept of exploiting poor countries and bargaining prices down leads to rotten bungalows like in Poya Lisa, where nothing is kept working (lamps, door-latches, breaking chairs and hammocks), because owners don't get money to repair or improve anything. You swim in "beautiful warm water" around the tiny island, if you enjoy toilet-waste of bungalows and you... More

Great atmosphere, great food, nothing to do but enjoy the views, the sea, the snorkeling trips. Ideal place for a week of so. Basic convenience (electricity only 6-10 pm), but who cares? Great place to meet other travellers.

We had a great time there, isolated from the world. Snorkelling, delicious food, and a great staff for this small and lovely place. You have your private bungalow on a private desert island, few people around, and this is the perfect place to relax properly. Highly recommended !

Spent 3 days in Poya Lisa Cottages! This is welcoming place located on small island close to Bomba village. It is 2-3 hours away from Ampana by public ferry. It is around 300 thousands rupiah (2 hours) to get to Kadidiri Island by private boat. This basic cottages is very good and you meet interesting crowd of backpackers and welcoming... More
