I loved our couple of days at Lazy Beach; the beautiful and very secluded beach, the basic bungalows, awesome hang-out area with the different 'zones', heaps of comfy chairs and hammocks, good food, no wi-fi or phone connection, very friendly staff. Loved it all.
We actually arrived to find that there was a mix-up with our booking between the booking office and island so they weren't expecting us til the following day (pretty rare occurrence I would say). I thought Chris handled this superbly - he immediately told us it was no bother, sorted out some staff accommodation for the first night for us within the hour and offered us a free drink. Awesome way to run a business. I like the way he greets you from the boat (which can be a pretty harrowing experience) and love the lime juice that greets you on arrival. They are small touches but make a huge difference to how welcome you're made to feel. I think places like this may eventually become flashed up resorts so felt kind of privileged to be experiencing this very untouched and lovely island paradise now before it changes. Only negative comment is that I didn't enjoy dealing with the woman in the booking office, e.g. we turn up on the day to "do you have a booking?! why you no confirm?!!"...um that would be Yes we have a booking, and we didn't confirm because (a) you didn't tell us we needed to and (b) we paid a whacking great deposit so wouldn't have thought confirmation was necessary. However this is pretty minor in the scheme of things and the island experience itself was divine.
