I would have loved to stay in one of their rooms, as the villa is beautiful, very tastefully furnished and the gardens are magical. The food was also very good, we had lunch in the terrace as the interior area had like 14ºC, too much air conditioning.

Tashier were super cute. Apart from cute tashier, there were nothing much at the place to see. But I would recommend people to visit anyway.

Although it was cool to see the tarsiers, the majority of them were sleeping (they're nocturnal), but the one we saw that was awake seemed like a cool little dude. Didn't move even though it was awake, so it was alright. Still glad I visited.

This is already closed as of this writing. According to the guides, there was a mandate from the government to centralize the preservation of all tarsiers in the conservation areas. We ended up having dinner in Tarsier Paprika which is still inside this area.

Tarsier Botanika is a resort and fine dinning restaurant. There are no tarsiers nor caged animals (as written by other reviewers) now. Just amazing sea view, nice landscape and great food. Asian 9 salad is so fresh, Salmon and baby back ribs are all so yummy. Sheila ( don't know her designation) is very accommodating and personally sees to it... More

Its a nice stopby for your countryside tour not much to see but if your more into the tarsier you migth find this place interesting. took pictures of the small monkey and my 9 year old was so interested but you cant touch or talk loud because of the tarsiers sensitivity!
