We had a great stay here. Only one night but the room was absolutely beautiful as well as the view over the lagoon.
The road leading to the lodge is a bit rough was the only thought I had.
Breakfast is nicely done.
Aircons in the room as well as tee/coffee making facilities with rusks.
The bathroom can get a little cold, however they have under floor heating.
Upon check out we were asked to pay for the accommodation - which we had settled straight after booking the hotel a month or two ago directly with the owner.
One of the staff members also emailed us before arrival to ask when we will settle our account – which was a bit frustrating as we already settled it directly with the owner! That was the only point that we were a bit unhappy about as it seems a bit unprofessional. However the stay was perfect and I would recommend!
