The owners set us up with a few excursions, hikes and some beach days which couldn't have been more perfect. I have never been so relaxed in my life. There...

There were several group gathering places with stunning views of the rivers and jungle. We hosted a Birthday party with live music and Manoas was the perfect set up for that as well. The host Steve gave...

The view from our porch was beautiful! Our villa overlooked the ocean and islands beyond. Each night at sunset, the roars of howling monkeys could be heard in the bushes, Initially, the sounds were very frightening, but after we were informed that they were monkeys rather than the giant monsters they sounded like, we looked forward to hearing them each...

We stayed a week at this beautiful villa. The views were stunning. The grounds are covered in natural flora and fauna. We stayed in the 1 bedroom villa. Each floor had its own AC unit. The villa really captured the tropical setting inside and out. There was a fantastic view of the river from the porch and upstairs bedroom. One...

We also offer both one bedroom & 2 Bedroom villas with kitchen, lounge, TV, washer & dryer, private jacuzzi and sundeck. All villas are fully air conditioned and close to the pool. WiFi is available throughout the property. Private parking is located right next to each house. Staff are onsite. ***A new addition to the property, are 4 luxury Safari tents. Each tent is complete with a luxurious King sized bed, full bathroom, and viewing deck with lounge chairs and shade umbrella. The camping tents offer an accommodation that is just as comfortable as the villas, but brings you a step closer to the jungle around you. ... more   less
