Manana Resort is exactly what it claims to be on its website. There are no pretensions about it, no false claims or contrived photos: it is simply a complete escape from a hectic lifestyle. My husband loved it - as Brandon Flowers sings, we all need to have a "Sams Town" where we can go home to and now it... More

This is the perfect place for everyone who is looking for a little getaway, time to relax, hammock hangouts and a paradise beach. We where there in super low season, so there where only 3 guests including me and my Boyfriend at Mañana. That was a bit of a shame as I enjoy meeting other people and some things, like... More

We had a very relaxing stay after the gunung kinabalu climb .. we did not book in advance just a simple call one day before arrive was enough ! The staff is really nice and the food they prepare is good (spagetti pomodori and pancake is really recommandable). The small villas are clean and equippedwith mosquito nets ... the chalets... More

The walls of the bar/restaurant are covered with scribbles from travellers declaring Manana to be paradise and how they wish they could stay for ever. We stayed here for two nights and I never quite reached the level of passion some of my marker pen wielding predecessors clearly had. We stayed in one of the beach front chalets. It was... More

I stayed in Mañana Resort for a couple of nights and I wish I hadn't left when I did, I had such an amazing time. To start with the place is just a little paradise on earth. Surrounded by thick jungle you can only arrive by a quick boat ride. That gives the place extra charm. I stayed at one... More

Map location wrong when I wrote this review but the pictures are right. Boat ride to secluded beach but the adventurous can walk half an hour along coast. Didn't have internet or phone signal when I was there but apparently soon to be fixed. Great diving, waterboarding and everything you need. Not too big so cozy and quite, real nice... More

When we called to make the booking of a chalet we were told that they were all taken as a couple might extend for one more night. So we were offered the villa on the second "row" at a lower rate, though still higher than the chalet as its bigger, we were told. We replied that we were a couple... More

We loved that Manana is a boat ride away from all civilization! The villas are comfortable and clean, and there's nothing more relaxing than hanging out on a hammock steps away from the sand. The water is a lovely green but has a healthy dose of jelly fish in it, and no waves to speak of. The beach is relatively... More

When i read about Manana there was no doubt in my mind that i needed to go there. The description on their website and images i found on google, arriving at the bay is no disappointing sight either. Very luckily we were picked up by the Manana taxi at the airport and driven straight to the bay, the experience of... More

I stayed here from 23rd to 25th October 2014. I have been here before in 2010 therefore it was a pleasure to visit the gorgeous place and meet up again with Awie the guy in charge and also Tommy, the resident dog who is the pup of the previous dog (also named Tommy) who is now sadly dead.
