I'm there for 3D2N, since 29 Jan. I booked through Agoda. It's end of monsoon, so we didn't do any activity. Quite disappointed with this resort the moment I step into the room. I know it's not a 5 stars resort shouldn't be expecting so much. It's a superior room, beside a swimming pool at ground floor. 1) Poor housekeeping-... More

The room was relative basic but sufficient, good working airco. Shower could use some updating but for my stay, it worked. For women I am certain it wouldn't be acceptable. The set up with houses in a circle makes the "town" very cosy. Dinner was very delicious but breakfast was extreme basic for European standards. Restaurant was nice decorated and... More

Disappointing hotel, room not cleaned before we arrive - dead gecko and December bill on floor of room. Despite notice in room saying that they are serviced every day ours was not and we had to request for it to be done and get fresh towels.

We stayed in Jun'15 during fasting month (big mistake). First impression upon arrival was that the resort was pretty good, though not as nice as depicted on their website. But as we stayed, we met with quite a few incidences that resulted in this review. The room is very clean but the infrastructure is begging for an overhaul: 1) Some... More

We booked this hotel after checking out the rest and this is pretty much to our budget. The hotel is within walking distance from the jetty on well maintained walkway along the beach. Check in was fast as we were already registered at their hotel counter before getting on the ferry. Please get to the jetty as early as possible... More

I stayed here during Monsoon 2013. Was it a wrong period choice for vacation or wrong resort chosen? I had never write an Average review before and this is gonna be the first.

My partner and visited from December 2015, 15-20. It is monsoon season so very quiet but enjoyed a much needed quiet retreat. The chef is very good and accomodating, the staff very helpful and accomodating. Massages every day after a walk along the lovely beach or into the jungle were just the ticket.
