We spent a month at the Ariana Bungalows in April of 2014 and it was fantastic. We had a variety of fruit available on property and loved improving our coconut opening and fruit picking skills! Our bungalow was a perfect vacation house. The kitchen had everything we needed to try out making local fare. We were steps from the glistening...

Fully agree with all the reviewers here, this is a really comfortable place to stay and just what we wanted -a home away from home. The owners are really nice and helpful. The set up is great, you have pretty much your own house, access to the pool, BBQ and games room with pool table, games, TV, and a library...

“Stay more than a week, and it doesn't really matter if you are pool side or garden view as the pool is less than 1 min walk from any of the bungalows. Take earplugs if roosters will annoy you, but this is just general RARO advice cuz there are chickens everywhere on the island, we even saw a teeshirt complaining about the roosters hahaha.”
