Based on the reviews we read, we expected a lot from Phidjie Lodge. We got so much more! The bungalow: clean, charming, comfortable with lovely decor. The grounds: OMG the garden is so beautiful, the pool so inviting. The hosts: Olivier and Isabelle are astonishingly nice and helpful. They hooked us up with best snorkeling adventure and great birding hike, dinner reservations in town, scrumptuous breakfasts poolside... We are bird nerds, and we really enjoyed watching the colorful euphonias and parrots in the garden trees. It's impossible to adequately describe our comfort here. We just loved it!
