We visited Bubu Villa as a group of six (3 chalets) and had an amazing stay there. Absolute recommendation!
+ Stylish, clean chalets with outdoor showers, AC, comfy beds and daily servicing
+ Amazing restaurant on the beach with friendly staff and great food (especially for dinner, make sure you try the cashew nut curry)
+ Smooth transportation arrangement by the local management
+ Beautiful beach right in front of the villas, nice snorkeling and great diving around the island (check out turtle Bay divers!)
+ Free Sunbeds for hotel staff on the beach
+ Daily (!) two free cocktails and canapés during the happy hour, served on the beach
+ We got to see the new Chalets which are currently being finished, we might actually come back to stay there!
o The including breakfast buffet is a bit simple compared to the overall luxurious approach. There is a wonderful Italian espresso machine for great cappuccinos and you can order fresh omelets & eggs. Other than that it's toast and jam, some fruits and salad (?).
o There is a bunch of backpackers and budget restaurants and shops on the beach. A lunch alternative at best, but not comparable to the food at bubu...
o Several tour operators in the beach offer snorkeling trips or other beach activities, we went scuba diving daily and didn't try those out.
o One of the beach bars around has daily fire shows and a little party vibe going on, now for one night or two.
- The music of the mentioned beach bar is quote loud and might be disturbing for noise sensitive folks. It was no problem for anyone in our group though...
We loved bubu, for us it was worth the money and we would be happy to come again!
