Two nights was not enough in this slice of paradise! The treehouse was incredible - simple but clean and the air conditioner worked a treat. Treehouse number 3 had a fantastic view of the beach too. The grounds are heaven for nature-lovers such as us - snakes, lizards, flying lemurs, monkeys everywhere! The staff were friendly. The activities offered were...

These are not luxury cabins - but still you are not paying a luxury price! The tree houses are clean with clean linens and working air conditioning. They give you a unique feeling well above the ground and the nearby shore. When lying down you can feeling a slight motion. Your luggage is delivered and collected from your front door....

The cabin had two rooms each with 3 single beds, shower, toilet and small lounge with fridge and kettle. Our taxi from...

My family and I loved the location as its located at the rainforest area. The resort being next to the sea and in forest was amazing. We loved every bit of it. Would definitely go back again. Hospitality was good and the staffs were very helpful. The food served was good too.

We started our 2 weeks holidays in the resort and extended our original 3 days to 6 nights. We were staying in the cottage first and moved to the treehouse next. We were here in February, which is still rainy, hence it was half empty. It would probably be less fun when crowded with people. We liked the restaurant- buffet...
