We loved our stay here, so much so we failed to leave 3 times! The huts are beautiful and comfortable, the seating area outside is ideal, made private with shades and made cool with an outdoor fan. The only improvement I would make is to the bathroom, this was perfectly functional and adequate but was not done to the same... More

A very good choice if you are looking for silence and rest. The staff were very kind and helpful. The bungalows were clean and nice. The beds were large enough for two persons to have a good night's sleep. I can highly recommand The Bohemian Masala!

There is a Spanish song called Noches de Bohemian. The song vibrates of passion and warmth, sweet evening of peace. I would say Bohemian Masala is just like the sound of that song. The whole vaste Bohemian Masala area has a green oasis where you can dream away laying in one of the hammocks under the palm trees and listen... More

This place is really lovely - nice garden, great design, cute. It's quiet. However, the staff was rude, disorganized, and unfriendly. They gave us zero advice when we checked in - just showed us to our room. It was cute, but lots of bugs. (It's impossible to keep them out...the bathroom was basically an ant farm, hahah, and lots of... More

We stayed in these lovely huts by chance. The resort has taken over another that I stayed in last year. The whole area has been cleaned up and is now really amazing. The beautifully decorated clay huts are arranged around a lovely garden area where there are hammocks and areas to sit under the coconut trees. The huts are swathed... More

Very nice resort with kind heartwarming people working there! First we wanted to stay for 2 nights, but then we booked another 7, because we love to wake up with the nice sound of birds and waves. Its a really peaceful and spirtual place where the people smoke the whole place everyday with good-smelling herbs! From the beach boulevard and... More
