We stayed for 8 days in the Banana House which is owned by Monika and Banana. Our room was the penthouse of the Welness house. This is a wonderfull nice spacious penthouse. Two sleepingrooms with each own bath room. Sober, but all you need is in. we had our own terrace with diner table and enough place to relax in the shadow or sun. The terras had two hanging beds.
There is no restaurant with a menu, but there is a kitchen and a chef cook. You just give him money and tell what you want to eat in the morning and he will do the shopping and prepare the food. When the money is finished, he will let you know. the food was delicious!!
Breakfast is simple but tasty with a platter of food and toast with eggs or pancakes and fresh juice.
Walking to the beach is only 5 minutes, but this is the fishermen beach. The relaxed clean beach is approx 10 minutes walk .
the people are all very friendly and helpfull.
During our stay we followed the course "Art of Living" which was given by Monika herself. This cours takes 5 days, only 3 hours/day. Very refreshing course. I can recommend to combine your stay with this course which is held regularly.
Monika also give Yoga lessons each morning and each afternoon. If you want to join, you just go there. No need to apply in advance. Very relaxed!
Banana and Monika have created a relaxed laid back atmosphere. if you need to unstress, you go here. I did and it worked!
