We booked to stay here for 3 nights but extended it to 4 and wished we had more time to stay even longer. This is by far the best place we stayed in during our 3 month trip in South East Asia. There is a lovely sense of homeliness with everyone eating breakfast and dinner together. The beach itself is gorgeous and set in a friendly little village. We were invited to the house of a local fishing family for a traditional celebratory lunch and we felt so welcomed and looked after (and fed!). Huw and Rosie have perfected the art of running a guesthouse with the exact mix of leaving you to enjoy the peace and homeliness of Haven and welcoming you into the group and getting to know you. The food at breakfast and dinner was fantastic... we definitely gained a few pounds whilst staying at Haven!
There is also a beautiful island about 800m off the coast from Haven which you can swim or kayak to which has coral and a lovely secluded beach.
If you are thinking about coming here... do it! It will be the best decision of your trip.
