    Santai is a beautiful Indo/Asian themed resort which transports you to another country. It is beautifully maintained and close to everything you need, lovely beach within short walking distance, shops across the road and the room was amazing.

    Restaurants at Salt less than 10 min drive, you can hire cycles at Santai if your keen, however Spice Den at Santai is excellent and I recommend it over anything at Salt. Beach is only a 3-5 min walk away.
