Matthias is a great host and made us feel very welcome. We arrived late after an awful drive along a 4 km dirt track. Our driver was not amused at all. However, Matthias, one of the 2 Slovenian owners, was so charming and his lodge so pretty and pleasant that the six of us soon forgot the drive and settled... More

You'll be able to spot the lake's busy life as fishermen in canoes pass fishing, kids carry water or try to catch fish using nets by... More

This place has a great spot right on the Lake with beautiful views. We stayed in one of the dorm rooms, and they are basic and clean. In the morning you can sit and watch the fishermen on the water, quietly paddling across the lake to pick up their nets. It is a beautiful scene. Cocoa Village is run by... More

Apart from that 1 hour exercise we just lazed around, drank fresh fruit juice, swam, admired the peace of the place and the beauty of the setting.

I've stayed at Cocao Village a couple times. Tsaja and Matius are attentive and immediately make you feel welcome. Their staff is helpful and always willing to answer questions about activities to do in the area. The bungalows are comfortable and given over to lovely hand-painted artwork and colorful decor. The style is simple and relaxing with lots of ventilation,... More
