Guest Reviews

We had an awesome stay here, Yudi and Sarah and all of the staff were super friendly and happy to help out with anything. The coffee is really great too and the brekkie is bannnngin! Would definitely recommend this place, the beach is only about 5-10 minutes walk away and Lhoknga is a stunning little spot.

Yudi is trying very hard to make people feel like home. The place is very nice and very clean, the food is good and the kite spot is fun and safe. It's also a great place to meet people and we had a lot of fun chating with the other guests. We definitely recommand it !
