Situated right on the edge of one of the finest beaches imaginable, here one is spoilt for choice where to spend the day: should you opt for your hammock under the swaying palms in the garden of your bungalow? Stroll around the fabulous butterfly garden? Or ask the beach attendant to place your deckchair under your favourite palm on the... More

We stayed in a beach villa. The bungalow has enough space and is very clean. The staff is very helpful, friendly and always have a (true) smile on their faces. The Ayurveda treatments were absolutely wonderful and the consultations with the doctor very professional. Our overall experience: a very beautiful little resort with a familiar and personal atmosphere. This resort... More

Beautiful rooms, lovely staff, gorgeous beach, ok food. Only problem is that on the beach next to the private beach the locals poo there every morning. We didn't realise this until we had spent a whole day in the sea and some of our party became sick.

It's not right on the beach because they're not allowed to build on the beach but it's a 2 minute walk... More

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in and we were delighted with everything. The accommodation was first class, the food plentiful and appetising, the staff most helpful and efficient. The location was perfect, set amongst beautiful gardens, with a most inviting swimming pool, and grounds that ran down to the beach. Everything was kept immacuately and... More
