Beautiful resort with 15 chalets and amazing service. Secluded and best for couples and relax beach holiday. The massage was really good. Breakfast in bed options. No phone service and minimal wifi. Fishing trip is mandatory. Snorkelling would be amazing if not monsoon.

There isn’t any place to eat within walking distance you must take a taxi to eat elsewhere or into town. The hotel is secluded.
