After travelling along some rough roads for safari the week before, this was the perfect place to put up our feet and relax. The beach is beautiful and isolated which was great since there were few other guests during our stay. This meant it was nice and quiet in our bungalow and around the grounds. This is a perfect place to unplug and unwind, not for a homebase to then explore the rest of the island. If you had the need for entertainment, the bar in the main lodge was always open with music playing and games on hand to play (there is a computer in reception that we could use if needed). The food was fresh and delicious but would have been deemed overpriced had we not had it included in our room rate. We really didn't want to leave when it was time to head back to civilisation!!
