This place is good and we knew what we were booking; if you're up for sleeping in a luxury tent, in a remote area of the island...then you'll enjoy it as we did! The tents are about as good as they could be....I mean you have air con in a tent! That's pretty cool! In the day the tents are hot, even with air con on all the time, but you don't come to a tropical island to spend the day inside. At night, the air con works perfectly.
The setting is lovely and we did hang out in the resort sometimes. Tyne day beds and your tent terrace are nice. The reception / bar area is chilled with comfy bean bag chairs to lounge on. Some kind of plunge pool would be good, as it gets so hot in the day.
The food was a bit hit and miss, when we were there. Breakfasts were ok...pancakes are definitely the best option! However, with the dinner menu we had some good and some bad. Yellow Chicken Curry was really good, Chicken Taliwang wasn't great....especially as I learnt how to cook it better myself a couple of days later! More effort on the food and this resort will be a real winner!
The resort is really remote and getting to it at night is in pitch black. They provide you with headlamps, which helps, but maybe consider lighting the way out to the beach? It's not far and you could do it with solar power lamps??
Last bit...if you do stay here, make sure you go to Sunset Beach Resort, which is just a 5 min walk away. We spent a whole day here, on sun beds right next to the sea, watched sunset and then had a BBQ! A really good day!!
