Wonderful resort! Very nice and clean. Very green, gives you the feeling that you are in the jungle but close to the beach. It's small (14 bungalows), excellent personal and laid back service,
The bungalow (sand castle)
Lovely, beautiful design, the bathroom are very big and clean. It was on the beach, and in the jungle/forest, so be aware of the mosquito, use insect spray in the evening!
The other bungalows can also be recommended. We usually preferred staying at the bar/restaurant when not sleeping or being on the beach. As the resort is small, the difference was a lot smaller than we thought it would be beforehand.
Very good food, we love the wonton soup, the thai seafood salad, the curries and fried rice :)
The service was excellent! The staff was very service minded, always friendly, kind, a lot of fun and genuine, the best service we ever experienced.
Except from all the free beers and drinks (thanks if you read this), we loved the smoothies.
A long and private beach. Very beautiful with clear blue water, There are some stones the first meters when you enter the water (depending on the time of the year, late high season, the stones are almost gone), but there are always some paths with sand. When you're behind the stones there is 5-8 feet water and sand all over.
The beach is only shared by one other resort (Bamboo Beach). Both are small resorts and the beach is big.
At the end of the beach there is good snorkel, we saw lots of fishes and even a sea-turtle. On the rocky hill beside a monkey with kids on the stomach were hunting crabs.. and no other people:)
We rented a scooter for three days and it didn't take us long to drive to other beaches. We got picked up ON the beach, 200 meters away from our bungalow, for our snorkle-trip. Even though the resort is far away from the city center/Saladan we did never feel this as a drawback, rather the opposite.
If you want a party island, you go on another island, and if you want to relax in paradise take the 15 min extra drive from Saladan/Long Beach to Lalaanta:)
Even though some mosquito bites and towel that shreds cotton a bit, we're not in doubt this is one of the best vacations we've had.
