They have a great pool with an amazing view of the sea. The beach has hardly anyone on it which makes it a lovely experience. It is not the nicest beach, though, and not very suitable for swimming as you need to go far out.
The hotel is a bit quaint and it does not allow you to flush toilet paper down. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow all the way on the edge. The negatives are that it is right next a rubber plantation and you get woken up by vehicles driving past in the morning, the bed and sheets are somehow a bit musty and the room doesn't seem to get aired very often. Another strange thing is that they only have lipton yellow label as hot tea. There are few options for dining out, there is a small local place outside the resort which other reviewers mention but otherwise you are stuck in the hotel where the food is passable.
However it's very quiet and great for relaxing, reading some books you never got around to.
The spa is wonderful and the massages professional.
