The resort is nicely located on the south east side of the island, a 15 minutes walk from the restaurants and bars. A long tail boat will come to meet you at the pier and drop you off by the beach in front of the hotel (wearing flip flops is recommended as there is no pier and you will have to get in the shallow water).Most bungalows overlook the bay and have a private balcony to enjoy the view. They have a large amount of bungalows so reaching your room might require a 10 minutes walk and a bit of a hike. The location was great but the room itself was average. Whilst we ended up staying in one of the older and shabbier bungalows, a lot of them seem to be new and much more nicely decorated so it really depends on what room you get. The only thing I would recommend is not to throw any empty drink bottles you get from outside into the bins inside the room. They have a rather odd way of checking what’s been consumed in the mini bar, where they look at empty bottles in the bins rather than checking what’s actually missing from the fridge. As silly as it sounds we were asked to pay for four drinks we had not consumed just because they found empty bottles we had brought in from outside in the room. Not a big deal but they didn’t really know how to handle the situation at reception and they struggled to understand that we had not consumed anything and slowed down the check out process. Finally, if you book your stay here, don’t bother with breakfast or food in general as it’s more pricey than average out of the resort and it’s not great.
