The food was amazing, the beach was remote and gorgeous. Monkeys scampered around in the coconuts near my room. The beach was empty and wild. You must be prepared to be remote however. You won't know it from the food and staff, but you go down potholed road to Turtle Bay and when you're there, its not near much. But the staff will get you a tuk-tuk or car where you need to go. But be prepared for remote locale. The rooms are lovely.
