“A Treat Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2008

Set in the edge of the jungle the Paganakan Dii Tropical Retreat is an amazing experience. The accommodation ranges from small duplexes to dorm style rooms in the Longhouse, all of which have beautiful views of the jungle. Due to high demand I was unable to book a duplex which do have the luxury of ensuite open air-bathrooms and air-con, however the Longhouse was more than ample with shower rooms and facilities below and huge fans. The staff were all very helpful, but very discreet making you feel really chilled out and relaxed. It's a lovely place to get away from it all and just take in the surroundings and refreshing change to the average holiday!

When owner Anton approached me after being dropped by the bus, I told him I already had accommodation. He took me there to see about the Jungle Safari I had booked. After this I canceled my reservation and went with him to his new place. Fantastic choice. Everything I saw was more than I expected. The staff treated us all like family. We loved it so much we decided to come back for a second stay before departing for KK. The best place I've stayed in all of my travels in every category.
