(It is usually there November through March) But there were swimmable (with care) beaches a scenic 5 minute walk away. I experienced no jellyfish, which had... More

So a magical place with so overproprious service, cute little huts, the lotus flowers with grill chirp in the back and the look out into the roaring of the sea. With some peace and patience you can observe many birds, toads, butterflies and mangoes, or at dusk the spherical green glow of the spray. The staff is extremely helpful, attentive... More

Amazing experience in the beautiful villa. Don't have a second thought about staying here. Of all the resorts available in the cliff, this stand out. mesmerizing view for peace lovers. Have to compromise on the food as the chefs are used to cook for foreigners, so mention on the spices.
