First off I don't know who writes this reviews . It's not real . The owner doesn't tell you they have a large German Shepard dog guarding the property at night . And when you pass by the reception which happens to be very dark with no lighting when the owners leave, you could easily get mutilated by a dog... More

First of all: I didnt stay in the Resort. We just rented a Kajak to go to white beach island and stayed for the amazing sunset. The new owner (a funny dude from Bavaria, Germany) is really very friendly and helpful. He told us a lot about the island and the things to do around. Also about the kayaks and... More

Note: This post might seem contradicting to the old ones. That is because Diggi and Valerie, the new owners, have just taken over in the beginning of February, and I am glad we were there right on the first week they took over :) Despite being really busy with building up this resort again, they never gave up on any...
