We were greeted by Marshall at the Airport as previously arranged. Then we met Kylie, they are so nice, with lots of knowledge about the island. We stayed in an one bedroom bungalow, it was well cleaned, with a handy kitchenette. We were very impressed with how clean and well maintained the place is, gardens look amazing and we were... More

Our small family spent last week at Ariana Garden Bungalows and we loved every minute. Kiwi managers Kylie and Marshall were great hosts. They were never intrusive but always available if required and went beyond our expectations. The bungalows are clean and comfortable but not fancy, the tropical gardens and grounds are immaculately maintained and the atmosphere is as chilled... More

Imho this place is lovely. The bungalows are with no fancy frills but with everything you need and very spacious, the garden is very nice and the area one of the best of the island, far from the chaos and with picturesque valleys behind. The prices are great and i'm sure that I could not have wished for better. You... More

We spent a month at the Ariana Bungalows in April of 2014 and it was fantastic. We had a variety of fruit available on property and loved improving our coconut opening and fruit picking skills! Our bungalow was a perfect vacation house. The kitchen had everything we needed to try out making local fare. We were steps from the glistening... More

Fully agree with all the reviewers here, this is a really comfortable place to stay and just what we wanted -a home away from home. The owners are really nice and helpful. The set up is great, you have pretty much your own house, access to the pool, BBQ and games room with pool table, games, TV, and a library... More
