The other reviews capture the pros and cons nicely. The beach, with its soft, white sand and turquoise water, is exquisite but the hotel is a disappointment, pure and simple. Though only a couple of years old, the huts look ancient, with rotting, termite-eaten wood and a general air of decay. Yes, this is rge tropics but they could at least invest in maintenance. Furthermore, the oily nasi goreng and mie goreng gets tired after a day or so. The menu just isn't conducive to a long stay. If you have the money, stay at the Lor Inn; if you don't, stay at Bukit Berahu, which has better rooms at a similar price.

Great for a month or a long weekend. Well preserved Dutch colonial downtown and super friendly laid-back locals. ... more less
