Hotel is quite distant from town. Around 9 kilometers. The property looks nice. Beautiful pool. The room we had was a good walk up and down small hills and steps. We did not have night tables nor reading lights. The bathroom needs more light. If you arrived late, it was difficult and dark walking to room.

These cottages have a clear view of swimming pool and beach as well. It has 2 swimming pools. Service is good. Food in restaurant is excellent, if you order from the menu. I will not recommend...

This is the place to go if you're into yoga retreats, Ayurvedic massage & health treatments. We really just wanted a beachside break but got quite into the healing rhythm of the place after staying there a couple of days. It feels fairly old & the private cabins with sea views are the best; some other rooms aren't that great....
