My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights before moving to the Sanctuary Resort on the other side of the Island for two nights. In hindsight we wished we had stayed at Ariana the entire time! The Bungalows are really clean and comfortable, the gardens are well kept and the property is great for both families or groups. We... More

Ariana Bungalows is brilliant! The surroundings are beautiful, the atmosphere is warm & inviting & there's plenty of spots to relax in from poolside to hammock. The hosts Kylie & Marsh make us feel right at home each time we visit, so much so we have stayed at Ariana 3 times & are returning again next month! Their friendly faces... More

The bungalows are tidy and maintained daily, the managers are amazing to spend the night talking to - and they introduced us to the locals, who we made good friends with! Just really thoughtful and... More

I spend three months at Ariana Bungalows and it was just fantastic! The surroundings are beautiful, the rooms tidy and clean. It basically has everything you need, and of course the added bonus of a swimming pool. However, the biggest plus for me were the hosts. They truly make you feel at home and help you in any way they... More

It was simply the perfect vacation! We were, even though it was in the middle of the night, picked up from the airport and driven into the dream-like resort. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the managers are probably the nicest people I've ever met in my life. It was comfortable, clean, friendly and beautiful! What more could you want.... More

Ariana Bungalows is my "Home away from Home"! My friends and I have stayed here four times in the past two years - that is how much we love it! There is no better way to start the day & end the evening by sitting out on the deck & taking in the beautiful surroundings. It is just so peaceful... More

Ariana Bungalows is garden bliss, away from the beach - so limited impact to the lagoon (unlike all the resorts and their septic tanks). This place has a handful of bunglows nestled in an immactly kept garden. Marshal and Kylie keep the grounds and bunglows in top condition. The bunglows that are available (a few more are in the process... More
