What is more, there are some absolutely wonderful, spacy, stylish bungalows facing the sea, a little bit more...

The Napatana Lodge team were so incredibly kind to us, offering us a great room for the night and even a free delicious dinner. The accommodation was great...

You couldn't find a friendlier place to go. The staff were absolutely wonderful. The bungalows are perfect and the food great. Try the local ingredients including huge prawns.
