“A simple but enchanting hideaway: 11 villas on a lagoon shaded by coconut palms, a kayak away from the sea”
There are 11 identical villas scattered between the coconut palms, each with a private terrace and a view of the sea. Some are close to the dining area and the pool, others are more distant and extra private, but note: the access path is poorly lit.
All are very comfortable inside and very spacious. There are white plaster walls, shining tiled floors, bright curtains at generous windows and slatted, sliding doors. Beds are low and kingsize (no twins); according to a visitor, “the best beds in Asia”. If you come with a child, daybeds can be made up in the sitting room. Mosquito nets protect you at night; air conditioning and ceiling fans keep you cool. Equally admired are the bathrooms, their circular his-and-her basins set into teak, and their half-open, rain showers matched by tip-top toiletries.
Breakfast is brought to your terrace whenever you like it - until 11am. On offer are omelettes, fruits, croissants, rice cakes, coffee, tea.
Lunch and dinner are a la carte, served at white-clothed tables on the beach - impossibly romantic, especially as the sun goes down. Alternatively, eat in the dining room, circular and elegantly set with round tables; sip cocktails in the sand-floored, multi-sofa’d bar beforehand. The food is mostly simple, fresh and Asian inspired, and the fish comes straight from the boats - what could be nicer? There are huge seafood platters delivered on silver dishes; barracuda and crayfish served on palm leaves and cooked with herbs and lime; fish carpaccio and lobster, tiger prawn thermidor, prawn and grapefruit salad, and the best mangoes you’ve ever had. The aperitifs are very good, the wine list is small but acceptable.
This is a family-friendly resort of the most tranquil kind - and kids stay for free in the summer months. Children will love the warm pool, the warm sands, and the softly sloping beach protected by a sandbank from the sea. Food is available all day.
