Luckily, a colleague of mine had gone to the island three weeks prior to our trip and advised us to go with SIBH. We booked the Beach Front Room Double with Full Board which cost us $85...

Great service from friendly staff. I enjoyed to nature walk, evening barbecue with camp fire at lake side. Very quiet place to clear your thoughts.
