Resort has a private beach, and that's the USP. (portion of Vijaynagar beach) Food - did not like, costly. Rooms have no A/c, heat and mosquitoes are unbearable. Staff - friendly Bamboo cottages have many insects inside, especially in bathrooms.

About
Description
Our resort is essentially a ‘better’ back packers budget resort and therefore have limited facilities. We are very popular with international guests looking for a relaxed beach hut type atmosphere. We also take More pride in being environmentally friendly and hence do not have air-conditioning TV's and telephones. Hot water is available by bucket only at the wood fired boiler near to the rooms. We try and reduce the impact tourism causes on our little piece of paradise as much as we can. Therefore our Policy is against surplus usage of resources. Our property is rustic, made with organic material (bamboo mat walls, thatched roof), open to sky showers etc and therefore may not be suited for all (If you do not like open spaces and are scared of nature then this place is not for you) Less

Hello, unsure about the snakes but there are creepy crawlies. During my stay there was a young baby so I think the resort does accommodate for children
