There are some places in the world you travel to and feel you need never go back. Been there. Done that. This is NOT one of those places. After a gruelling 21 hours of travel - after the 10.5 hour flight we then had a 6 hour drive from west to east across the whole country - we

This property was beautiful located right on the clean beach front. Infinity pool was super clean and very welcoming after day trips. The food at the restaurant was very well presented and delicious. Our room was very tasteful, clean and very roomy. Tip: very hard to locate

It is one of the best hotels I ever stayed in. Everything was perfect and above expectations. We were a bit worried about staying in tents, but I was impressed, it’s worth all the way. I was there with a group of friends and stayed for a week. We upgraded to a beach front room

I was there with a group of 14 friends and we stayed for 7 nights. I think It is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. It was a perfect choice. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, well-equipped and very confortable. Some of us stayed in the garden rooms, while the others in the

What a great gem this is. Hidden at the end of a dirt road right on the beach it is just what we were looking for for our New Year. If you are searching for a beach bungalow on a long sandy beach with no resorts around, this is the place. The luxury tents are fantastic, total

Hi Neil, we stayed in a beach front tent in September and can only comment on how we found the place to be, firstly we found Jerome to be very helpful regarding any questions or requirements which included him getting a personal friend of his to arrange a fishing trip for me along with some great football banter we found Jerome to be an excellent host, with regard to getting a beer or bottle of wine etc then I suggest you speak personally to the hotel with regard to the alcohol licence but will add that we purchased many a bottle of wine and bottles of beer from the local off sales which is just a short TUT TUT ride away and is very cheap, if you fancy a change in restaurant from Karpaha then Pasikuda is a short TUT TUT ride away where they are quite a few hotels with bars and restaurants that you can use and in our experience was a maximum of around a 15 minute journey, the food at Karpaha was excellent especially the deviled prawns and the beach BBQ is not to be missed and is very very reasonably priced, we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to you

"for couples 100% a beach front tent and a beach BBQ is fantastic value for the money"
"Palam Suites are right on the beach. Kolaya Suites are bigger but on the back of the Palam Suites and have a huge enclosed garden."
"2 bedroom tents are closer to the entrance. Single room tents offer sea-views, are closer to the restaurant and pool but not the entrance."
"Get the villa with an ocean view."
"Beach front rooms a little further from the club house for a little more privacy."
$187 - $304 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
