About
Certificate of Excellence
Mantis & Moon BackPacker's The ORIGINAL Surf & Yoga Lodge that has been growing from strength to strength since 1999. The German owner has travelled all over the world, gathering inspiration, to create something unique & spactacular! This is something that you have never experienced before & probably never will!

From glass tree houses that allow you to see the monkeys play in the tree tops, to the incredible yoga studio, this establishment has it all. Swim in the rock pool, play a game of pool in the jungle bar or chill in one of our many chill areas, there is something for everone. MAny activities & adventure await just around the corner from the beach...

Very rustic, yet beautiful. If you are looking for the rustic feel. This is definitely a place for you! We stayed in the "Paris" room, which was a glass room in the forest. Very beautiful and tranquil.
