This was a beautiful beach boutique hotel situated on the lovely beach at Lintha Village but with guesthouse prices! The beach is a small crescent-shaped bay backed with palms. It's really attractive because it's a real working fishing village - fishermen go out to catch squid every night of the week. When they return they dry the fish on the beach and this does smell but it adds to the authenticity rather than being unpleasant.
The hotel itself is calm, clean and well designed. The landscaping is so beautiful that you feel like you're in a five-star hotel. The prices are not yet 5-star prices though. The rooms are huge and the staff clean the rooms twice a day.
The restaurant was excellent. Great breakfasts. We also tried the food on the beach and it was also excellent, especially the "red-roofed place". We also organized a snorkelling and lunch trip through this restaurant owner. I also had a good massage for $15 for an hour!
Perhaps the best part of all is the staff. They are so kind, helpful and generous with their help and with their smiles that they really make your holiday.
It was also good to feel part of the Andrew Clark Trust project (as mentioned in other reviews). All the proceeds from the hotel go to support the local school.
We are already planning to return on our way to Australia next year. It makes for a wonderful stopover spot just 2.5 hours from Singapore.
