We had a wonderful week recently spent here. There was 9 of us, in five rooms with air-conditioning and plenty of room. The bathrooms were all different. The king size beds were very comfy - firm just the way we liked it! All the rooms and suites were close to each other. The pool is magnificent, surrounded by lush and... More

Due to past reviews on trip advisor I had very low expectations of this resort, but was amazed when we got there of the quality of the place for so little money. The room was spacious in lovely tropical jungle surroundings. Beach just a short walk down the road. With reasonably priced food available in the restaurant. Or if you... More

This was my 3rd or 4th stay at this Resort as I visit friends in Medewi regularly. I did try one other hotel there the first time, that was horrid, & overpriced, so I always stay now at Medewi Bay Resort. I love it. Since my last visit a lot of work has been done & it is even better.... More

As the place is a retreat, it certainly has those qualities. It's remote, peaceful and amongst local villagers and topical forests. If you want cafes, bars and a lively night life don't expect that here. I spent time learning to surf, great coach and easy conditions. Previously we did the snorkeling trip which was amazing. The retreat restaurant does good... More

I can understand why this resort divides opinion, but if you value quiet, nature and relaxation, I think this place is perfect We booked into the resort through RCI and were initially disappointed with the one bedroom apartment offered as it was quite dark. However, as occupancy was low, when we enquired about the chance of a different room, reception... More

Stayed one night in a Villa. Grounds and staff lovely. There are no shops or warungs within walking distance so unless you have transport be prepared to eat here to.

My wife and I just had 2 weeks away at this retreat. We found the staff, from reception right through to the gardeners, were most welcoming and accommodating with every request. The restaurant and bar was more on the higher side cost wise, compared to other restaurants in the area, but still cheap to our Australian standards. Our room was... More
