As a couple traveling as back packers, having two nights at Lankayan, turned out to be the best treat we could give ourselves. The house, the beach, the water and the view were truly magnificent and the staff was nice and calm.

Absolutely wonderful place. Fantastic accomodation, very friendly staff and good food. The location is idyllic and the dive and snorkeling sites are uncanning. Also great place to see some turtles nesting, we even saw a nesting right under our cabin.
