Bushman is a simple no frills place to stay, but what a view! The rooms are simple but clean and on the beach. It is on the east side of the island, but if you email the owner in advance he will pick you up when you're off the boat for a few pounds.
Location is good, a 20 min walk from the turtle rescue and the starting points to some adventurous jungle walks. The restaurant is good. The menu is limited and service is slow but there are board games and the stunning view to keep you entertained.

Having read the TA reviews I fully agree this place is fabulous. It was very well priced for a simple family chalet with 2 large double beds, own bathroom & fridge. Meals at the Bushman cafe were delicious. Prices very reasonable & so tasty! I had the chicken with peanut satay sauce 3 times during our stay! Beer also cheap. We did 2 excellent snorkelling trips with bushman, amazing coral, so many tropical fish & saw turtles too. On the trips we had lunch on the other side of the island which reminded us how good we had it at bushman at juara beach. Basic but excellent accommodation.

We had an amazing 5 days here! After looking at many places to stay and finding that some were too basic and others were far too expensive, we found that Bushman fitted the bill perfectly and also had great reviews.
The chalets are right on the beach and are detached with little balconies so you can have real privacy, along with an amazing view.
All the staff are so friendly and helpful (special mention to Abia who provided constant service with a smile!) and the food was all so delicious that we ate most meals here.
We explored both parts of Juara beach during our stay and can confidently say that for quality, price and location, there is absolutely nowhere better than Bushman!

Bushman's ... Wow!! I never stayed in a chalet like here before . Beautiful private chalets and beach just infront of the door.. And beautiful sun rise and if you are lucky can see full moon and its reflection in the ocean water.. So lovely to see it . And the staffs are so friendly especially guy named Amiri he will make friends with people over there and let everyone to join in one table for full night singing and drinking . And Mr.Bushman he helped us to buy stuffs from ferry terminal . And Mr.Bushman's food is so yummy.. Most people in that place say Bushman pizza is the best so try it if you are ever there or in Juara beach ..
Make sure you book in advance. Most people they book it like for 7-15 days straight . Such a good place it is .

We spent a week at Bushman's and had the most amazing time. The chalets are clean and are right on the beach. The staff are so friendly and the food is fantastic. We also did two day tours with Bushman's and got to snorkel amongst beautiful marine life. Plenty of coral, fish and turtles. The snorkelling is also great straight out the front of the chalets.Well priced accomodation in a beautiful part of the world. If you are wanting to sit on the beach and relax (even with teenagers!) or snorkel and swim in clear waters , this is the place to go. Thank you Bushman's for your hospitality.

Room Tip: We stayed in the family room, which had a double bed and a king size bed, plenty of room for a family of four.
