Truly a paradise, just within minutes from the mainland..

I am reviewing both the longhouse and cafe. The minute u arrive, Shah the keeper will greet you with 'make yourself at home' and that's exactly how we felt. The best feature of the long house would be the balcony where its comfy and we can just stare at the blue sea and skies while listening to... read more

This place has one of the best locations on the island - right at the end of the beach and shaded by palms. Lots of hammocks to hang out in, and food served pretty much all day - affordable and some great dishes. Beer is not always available, and 10rm for a small can, so I would recommend to bring...

We stayed in the island for 4 days and this was where we stayed The hostel itself is very close to the beach, right next to it actually, full of hammocks and just perfect one for chilling. You will love the calmness of this island.

It's located directly next to the beach, a rustic wooden building in the jungle with a small bar, lots of hammocks and place to chill out. Except breakfast no food is available but there is a very good restorant right next door. Staff is very kind and... More

My husband and I were booked at nearby Kapas Island Resort which did not serve beer. So we decided to walk over to Captain's Longhouse to get some. Unfortunately, and contrary to what others in Tripadvisor reported, beer or any alcoholic beverage is not served anymore.

Food was alway a surprise and you eat together as a family with the owner himself Capt. Shariff Abbas plus his crew, Kalid,... More
