We were totally unprepared for how lovely Lilly Village is, when we got our of the tuk tuk, tired and dirty after a long train journey. We were led through the tranquil garden, to the open dining area and given tea and cold drinks. The rooms are peaceful and the ' open air' bathrooms are elegant, with all you need including a hairdryer.
Breakfast - fruit plates, toast and eggs was lovely. My only criticism is that there is no-one on the premises between 7pm and 7am so early morning or late night cups of tea etc are unavailable.
It is 5 minute walk to the 5km beach.
The staff are charming and the decor of the communal spaces is beautiful. We will be back again.
