They also offer a lot of other activities like lunch at Lagen or on some other islands, and island hopping tours, with helpful and courteous...

The homey feeling will make you stay. I like it better than Lagen. It makes me comfortable, no pressure. It was like home. Rooms similar to country style. The restaurant serves good food. Very near to small & big lagoon.
