Facilities and Amenities
 
We offer accommodation in plush, safari-style semi-permanent tents and comfy huts.

Tented Cabanas

These large and tastefully decorated Swiss-style (we have no idea why they are called Swiss-style, but they are) tents are built on permanent plinths, and exude coziness and comfort. They come with several plug points to make your life easier, ample storage space for your clothes, a balcony with rocking chairs for relaxing with a book, a powerful fan (no AC needed!) and electronic mozzie repellants (it works) or mozzie nets, whatever you prefer, and an en-suite bathroom (yep, hot water*).

The rooms are not airconditioned, nor do we have any plans of putting in aircon (in these or any of our rooms). For starters, being beachside on a very green island, with minimal concrete development and lots of tree cover, means that even in the peak of summer, it is much cooler here than in cities (a fact we notice every time we leave the islands!). We get a cooling sea breeze in the day. And we have designed the rooms to have as much natural cooling as possible. The fan will provide more than enough cooling to let you sleep comfortably at night.

 

Standard Huts:

The Standard Huts are basic, inexpensive 10'x 10'shacks without en suite bathrooms. Let's be blunt here - they are utilitarian, no-frills room which are a place for you to keep your stuff and sleep. The toilet block is just behind the rooms, so no longer walks, and are tiled and have hot water for showers.

These rooms are ideal for people who dont want to spend a lot on a room, and are comfortable with basic accommodation.

Please note that Standard Huts are only available in conjunction with a diving package or course. For non-divers, may we suggest a Tented Cabana.

 

Upgraded Huts:

The Upgraded Huts are what happen when the Tented Cabanas and the Standard Huts have a baby. Completely rebuilt in 2016, they are also tented style rooms on a permanent plinth, with an attached bathroom. The rooms are the same size as the Standard Huts (10'x 10'), but a fair bit nicer. And they come with an attached bathroom with hot water.

A good option if you dont want to spend a lot on a room, but want something a little less spartan.

Please note that Upgraded Huts are only available in conjunction with a diving package or course. For non-divers, may we suggest a Tented Cabana.

There are ample common areas for socializing, and enough private spaces to allow you to have a quiet moment if you so desire. Also check out the Facilities and Amenities section for more information on what we have to offer.

Our philosophy is value for money - we aren't trying to offer the cheapest possible accommodation, nor are we trying to build a super high-end resort. We are geared towards people who want a comfortable accommodation and friendly, personal service while retaining the feeling of being in a remote and exotic tropical destination - but without paying 5-star resort rates. Of course, if you want to pay 5-star resort rates, you are more than welcome to pay us more - we are very flexible in that regard.

We aren't a big resort, nor do we want to become one. We like knowing all our guests by name and fin size. And that way, everyone gets to have a hammock as well (and we don't have to give up ours!).

*UPDATE - Due to severe increase in electricity demand, the island's generator often cannot produce enough power (we are supposed to get 220V, we get 170V); as such, the hot water geysers don't always work very reliably. This is going to continue until the island's electricity production has been upgraded. Please be aware of this.
