    About
    Hotel description
    Very few places like this still exist in the world. A totally natural, 'away from it all,' friendly island eco set up, with clean comfortable rooms, natural gardens right on the beach - absolute beachfront, with no roads between you and the sea. Hot showers, cooking facilities, wonderful walking tracks, pristine beaches, coral reef snorkeling off beaches, kayak to lagoon. Perfect relaxation.
