As mentioned by another reviewer a real highlight was to relax around the... More

We loved staying in this hidden paradise boasting 2 pools! It was so peaceful, we saw monkeys hanging around the trees while we ate breakfast. The hotel is set about a 10 min drive away from the beach amidst rice paddies. Even though the second half of the grounds is under construction, it didn't take away from the charm of... More

The hotel has the potential to be an ideal location but poor facilities let it down. The new apartments do not have adequate electricity supplied to them, resulting in power failures and air con insufficient. Our friends rooms did not have a fridge or any working air-con. Loss of water supply on occasions also a problem. The management speak little... More

This place went far beyond our expectations in terms of location-absolutely in the middle of nowhere-facing rice terraces, not a sound to be heard except nightly chanting from the Buddhist temple and monkies moving through the trees.
