The guesthouse itself is beautiful, the rooms themselves are basic and functional, the air-conditioning works well, as does the wifi and the cable tv. Each room opens onto a large covered veranda overlooking the garden, on which... More

Me and my friends only stayed for a night and the staff were very friendly and most of all very flexible. There's nothing to really complain about and we had a great stay. They even drove us around to places for a very small fare.

I spent three nights at Karthika Plaza Resort. 1km or so away from the helipad and beach, but the owner was always available to drop or pick me up free of charge so not a problem.
