With just 10 or so luxury beach huts set on a stunning white sand beach in a remote cove, this truly is a place to get away from it all. You will be lulled to sleep by the waves breaking 20 meters from your veranda and, when you wake up, you will have an interrupted view of the cove to that just fills you with awe.
For the incredible remoteness, there are a few sacrifices which those used to super deluxe hotels might miss:
- a comfy smooth trip to the hotel - the place is located 10km from a sealed road, so brace yourself for a 25-30 minutes of bumps
- there is no mains water supply so water is trucked into the resort, as a consequence, water pressure in the showers can be a bit weak
- electricity at times is cut off to save diesel fuel on power generation
- meals need to be ordered a meal in advance as the nearest market is 1 hour away
However, these are minor hardships for the tranquillity and undeveloped beauty of the place. The staff are charming and lay on plenty of activities such as:
- a nice "soft trek" around the cliffs where you get a lovely view of the beach camp and get to meet some of the local fishermen
- snorkelling on some pristine white and pinkish beaches (the snorkelling isn't world class as the reefs are a bit damaged, but there is still plenty to see)
- cycling (not for the feint hearted, some previous mountain biking experience probably useful)
The cove on which the camp is based has some pretty choppy water so if you do go for a swim, stay close to the shore to avoid the dangerous rip. There is some great body surfing to be had though!
The staff are very personable. The food is good if not particularly refined. Being so far away from the market and there only being 10 huts means that choice is quite limited. This we did not mind but sometimes we felt the food was catering to western palates a bit too much - e.g. broccoli soup followed by spaghetti bolognese at lunch time. While these dishes were good they didn't compare to when the chef cooked a seafood mee goreng, which was stunning,
We stayed three nights as part of a nine night break. Our other hotel was Jeeva Klui in Sengiggi which we highly recommend - both hotels compliment each other very well with Beloam being beautifully rustic and remote and Klui being a sophisticated luxury hotel in more of a resort area.
