A little patch of paradise very close to Singapore! We stayed here for a long weekend with our 6 months old baby. It's a very charming "village" of small cottages, all with seaview, and a restaurant and a bar. The food was really good, especially the BBQ night on Saturday evening.Also they serve a "baby food" menu, making everything you... More

We stayed 3 nights. Are a family with 4 kids 8-15 years old. Had a challet with 2 rooms one with a double bed, one with 2 bunk beds. Ceiling fans and night breeze made sleeping comfortable. Snorkeling, diving, bathing, island exkursions are the activities offered. There is a nice bar and restarant area to sit and read a good... More

We went to Sea Gypsy over Chinese New Year Holiday earlier this year. We were apprehensive before going since I hate camping and bugs. We went with a group and each drove separately. We stayed in a small bungalow and it was nice. It had a little electricity with the light switches and bathroom lighting. I agree with the reviewer... More

Even with heavy bug repellent and avoiding the sand and staying in the ocean i am left with a lot of bites from sand flies. Sandfly bites are really itchy n may scar. There is no air-conditioning so it was really hot at night. We had to open the windows and use mosquito nets which worked but also prevented the... More

We set our expectations quite low because it seems wherever we go we are surrounded by screaming kids and crap service. But we were genuinely impressed with this place, it's exactly as advertised. Very clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There were a few kids but we have no idea where they went during the day because... More

Great place for chilling and getting away from day to day life. No internet no cars. They offer children services, although not all day and definitely aimed at the older children. Lots of expat families go which crestes a bit of a 'unique' environment, will suit some, but not everyone. A nice 'front of house' gentleman called Hilman puts a... More

Just came back from what was a great weekend at Sea Gypsy until a police check point spoiled the trip. Overall, was impressed by the quality of the resort and thought it was much better than near by more expensive resorts. Food and staff were solid. They could have better beach chair options. Boat drivers seem experienced and know the... More

From the moment the boat pulled up to the beach and our kids were carried to the beach, I knew they would love this place and they did. We were with friends with kids and all enjoyed it but keep in mind this is basic accommodation. Little wooden huts but perfect. The simplicity is something I have missed in SE... More

My Fiancée and myself went to Sea Gypsy with her parents. We all had a fantastic stay and were treated like royalty. The rooms are rustic but modern with excellent bathrooms. All rooms have mosquito nets, though we saw very few mosquito due to regular fogging. The staff were incredibly well trained and well mannered and would do anything for... More
