The accommodation is not the best in the region but Poya Lisa's relative accessibility and range of activities make it a must stay destination. Rooms are dark, toilets grubby, and beds hard. The food is simple, plentiful, and tasty. The beaches are clean and waters clean. The owners offer a free late afternoon snorkel at Suzana and Stefan reefs. These... More

Great food (fishes), very nice place with sea view (sun rice and sunset). Is it also good place to organize snorchling trips or visit the Bomba village. I can definitely reccomend it. Much better than Kadiriri forexample.

This might be my favourite place on the togian islands. It's a really small island with about 15 bungalows. We stayed up on the hill where you get a really nice sea view. We had turtles and a eagleray swimming just beneath our bungalow. Nice view of the sunset as well. Every day at noon and dinner you meet the... More

My personal paradise. I stayed here almost 1,5 months while I planned staying here only 3 days. It is absolutely beautiful here, the small island is covered with something like 15 bungalows which are separated from each other by quite a bit so you have privacy. Yes they are a bit run down, there are now western toilets in the... More

This place has lots of bungalows both on the beach and on top of small cliffs. Common to all is that they are in bad condition. Looks like nobody cares to fix anything. Electricity is the biggest problem: many bungalows were without lights and/or power outlets. Doors of the bungalows cannot be really locked, so customers must rely on honesty... More

Very relaxing and peaceful stay on a tiny island. Accommodation is very basic but functional wooden cottages with bucket showers and mosquito nets & cupboards to keep your belongings safe from any rodent visitors! I only saw geckoes during my stay. All meals plus tea & coffee are included in the room price of 160k - 200k IDR per person.... More

Poya Lisa offers simple bungalows on the rocks and on the beach. It's located on an own island. You get there everything you need (if you don't need your mobile phone, ATM or internet :-)). Take enough cash with you! Food was always enough, there are only very friendly locals working there. They were even searching for the coconut crab... More

Arriving at Poya Lisa was the best we ever had, with lunch freshly made for us! Most definately the loveliest staff in the world. Rustic cottages (the ones on the rocks on the left have Western toilets) with mandi. Prices includes 3 meals a day plus a snack, free water/tea/coffee all day. Despite the (very!) dry season, staff really tries... More

And the food (3 meals + snack) very nice, although everything has to come from Bomba. There's limited electercity from a generator from... More
