Nice location, good stretch of relatively clean beach, certainly much better than Bira. It is a long drive on a bumpy road, if you do not have a car, access can be difficult. Overall it is a good end of the Toraja trip and place to stay after a drive from lake Tempe. However it is really nothing to do... More

Spent 3 wonderfully nights. Nice clean simple bungalows set above a superb clean beach where snorkeling is just great. Breakfast is just OK like elsewhere in Indonesia but dinner is good. A good address we recommend!

It was an astonishing stay in this small paradise, even when it was for only one night! Lovely bungalows, a romantic diner with an excellent view on the beach and sea ..... Crew with a high grade of hospitality and service. Thx

Beautiful beach although it rained a lot, the view worth the bumpy long road to get there. But the attitude of the staff sucked. Especially the man in army t'shirt. We booked 2 bungalows because he said only two left when we booked by phone. Arriving there, no smiles, no helps and no welcoming words. It's okay for extra bed... More

8 spacy bungalows, along a path, leading through a flowergarden (lots of butterflies) to a pretty white beach. Idyllic! But then...... shabby bed linen, no towels available!!!! "due to the rain, we could not dry", a toxic bathroom due to an excesively moulding and leaking ceiling, no water/or drips from taps and shower, no proper doorkey, visitors toilet out of... More

The little resort with its 8 bungalows is located about 3km from the (if you can say that is Sulawesi) "touristic" village Bira on a bumpy road. It is definately worth to come here if you want to relax, swim and maybe go diving for a couple of days. The bungalows are all very nice as we stayed during our... More

With the different spaced out bungalows this set up makes it worthwhile to stay many days and nights. The beach with its white sand is not big, but for a relaxed stroll big enough. The food is excellent and the Bintang was always cold and fresh. The bungalows are air conditioned and have a clean interior and a very nice... More

This place feels relaxed and comfortable. The bungalows/rooms are not really fancy but that doesn't matter with the location and very nice and friendly staff. Don't forget to visit the island which you can see from the beach.
