We were recommended Yab Yum (on the beach) but as we went in low season they were all closed so booked Jivana. It was lovely, the Garden House is perfect for 2 couples, lovely rooms, outdoor living etc. The breakfast included is awesome (especially the organic coffee)! Dinner is optional and yummy! Only thing is you need to hire scooters because it's away from any action and taxis arent that reasonable. But it was cool to have scooters to explore the area anyhow, and they are cheap. The lady arranges this for you.
We did have an unfortunate 'peeping Tom' incident at the end of our stay (the bathroom is outdoor) but the staff we spoke to seemed to take it seriously enough.
Yoga is offered on the website, but there wasn't any mention of it when we stayed there.
