We stayed here during 14-16 February 2015 and had a great time. Great hospitality from Sunil and his people, enjoyed every bit of the stay here. The beach is not crowded, food is delicious, massages are great. Place to unwind and get refreshed wholly.

He went out of his way to ensure that we had a really great holiday. From relaxing and fishing on the beautiful... More
