The place is awesome, you feel that you are isolated from the rest of the world! It's great for relaxing, painting, writing or doing activities.
The beach, just a few meters from the bures, is perfect for snorkelling, you can see turtles, sharks, a big varieties of corals... magnifique! after a swim of 50 meters there is a coral wall drop off, that is very rich. We went spearfishing with some people of the staff, it was very good.
The first day it feels weird, like entering a kind of community. But very quickly you understand that the clients here feel really at home thanks to the staff. The staff were very helpful, warm, welcoming. We went there for 6 days in the beginning of our round the world trip and the place worth the travel. The food is simple, healthy and nice.
The bures are face to the ocean and back to the jungle. the nature is cleeeeeeeeean.
Perfect for couples, family and single travellers because you can stay by yourself or mingle very easily with clients and staff.
Even when the place is full, you dont feel it crowded.
Visit this place.
