My wife and I stayed two nights at Yandup Lodge. What a great place! They serve three good meals a day including fresh seafood caught that day, right there. The bamboo/thatched huts are primitive compared to a motel room, but with running water, mosquito netting, and the freshest of all breezes blowing through it's like a little Paradise. The over-water cabins have a covered porch/balcony all the way around with two hammocks providing a relaxing way to contemplate the beautiful surroundings. Each day they offer two optional "tours", morning and afternoon. We took a beach/snorkeling tour and the community-visit tour, both highly recommended. For us it was a great place to kick back. But if you need to be entertained, or if you just have to be doing something all the time, it may not be for you. For us it was idyllic. Two nights weren't enough -- maybe 4 or 5 would be. Or 14.
