We had a great stay at Banana leaf shortly before Christmas. The bungalow was very cosy, clean and equipped with everything we needed. The best was the people running it. They were overly friendly and would help us with anything we needed...they would even take us with them to go surfing!! Great stay, will come again!

Super friendly Norman and the rest of the staff. This loving attitude is very contagious. Very relaxed atmosphere. Prices are also very reasonable. I'm staying at banana leaf 3 with a fan room that might not be great luxury but it has everything you need. I can only recommend it.

Our stay in Banana Leaf was not too bad. The staff was friendly, but had a weird vibe about it. The room smelled funny, though, and we couldn't figure out what it was. Right after we left, we discovered numerous bed bug bites on our legs, which would explain the weird smell as well. There's another review that tells about... More

We loved our 4 night stay in these bungalows. Norman and co were fabulous. There was a good, friendly, party vibe in the place - even though our bungalow was across the road from the bar area. As it is a little bit back from the main strip, it was always quiet when we wanted to sleep. Breakfast was delish!... More

We were only meant to stay on gilli t for three nights after staying at another bungalow for one night we met Norman at banana leaf and decided to move there.

The best thing about Banana Leaf are all the guys who work there, they are so friendly and willing to help with whatever you need! There is a bar and someone is always there, most nights we'd get drinks and play cards with the staff and other guests, it was really lovely and social. Rooms are basic but clean, AC... More

We checked in here after arriving off the boat from Bali, feeling hot and exhausted. This place seemed fine on first look, but once we were in our room, we realised it was filthy! The sheets were stained and dirty, the bathroom was disgusting and we really didn't want to spend any time there at all. We left to find... More

U get what you pay for. We paid 300k for a room, a bit worn down, clean enough, ac, ok breakfast served at the room. Friendly and easy going staff. 5min from the beach. Calm but still really close to the main street.
