MantaRay Island Resort Jungle Bure v Beach villa

Hi, we are planning on staying at Mantaray Island Resort island resort in May and can’t decide between the beach villa or the Jungle Bures? Has anyone ever stayed or seen them and can you advise which is better.

I also saw a post saying that there aren’t tropical beaches or clear blue water here. Is that true?

Thanks,

The resort is on a lagoon, white sand beach. We stayed in the Jungle Bure it was fine the beach villas are new, I haven't seen them.

Suggest you go to the resort website and look at the photos for a better idea of what to expect.

Things have changed on the island now. The upgrade last year has introduced some new reef Bures with flushing toilets compared to the jungle Bures composting toilets.

As mentioned above do check out their website as the new reef bures might suit you better.

PS a bonus staying there is you can swim with the mantarays between May and October.

Beach villas are the reef bures.

I am usure how advising the OP and explaining the difference in the type of bures and directing them to the website is a breach of Trip advisor rules.Maybe someone could message me to explain.

Just for the OP's there are a number of Bure accommodation on the MantaRay Island Resort

These are.

Beachfront Villas

Jungle Bures

Treehouse Bures

Reef Bures (new)

and a 32 bedroom Dormitory

Hope that clarifies the situation.
