This is not luxury, but it is bliss. The salt water showers (there's no fresh water on site) and basic decor might put some off, and the sometimes haphazard service might frustrate, but you don't go to pongwe if you want 5 star treatment. Go if you want somewhere unique, with character, and in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable. The chef and barman are pretty damn good as well. You'll find fault if you are looking for it, but you'll find bliss if you're looking for that too!
