Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We absolutely loved the outdoor bathroom. The fish massage, pool and gardens make it a very relaxing stay. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Maybe it will be nice when it's finished.

My bungalow was lovely, but almost all the others were in varying stages of construction. I couldn't find reception; staff appeared only when I loitered in the restaurant area. Nobody who knew the right WiFi password could be found. The restaurant had no seat cushions, ants in the sugar and some rather frayed wiring in the thatched roof; I'm glad it wasn't raining. The food was average to downright weird ("tandoori" chicken covered in bland tomato-based sauce; chocolate cake with breakfast).
