Great food, Excellent juice. Great location with a view of the bay. Very nice staff. Very reasonable prices. Try the banana pancakes !

We stayed four nights but could have stayed for weeks! Clean, cozy, comfortable - the bungalows have all you need: a/c, fan, hot showers, good beds, a fridge. Swimming is perfect in crystal clear water, sunrise is beautiful here. Bushman offers the best food on the whole island. It is heaven on earth!

If you don't wanna read until the end, my main recommendation has nothing to do with the hotel itself, which is a very good one. it's about the sandflies on this part of the island. Save yourselves and bring a good repellent, perhaps a few, of different types, and see which works best. With that out of the way, you'll be able to properly enjoy this place as it deserves to be. We didn't have one and we had a hard time.

Had a great stay there. Bushman and his crew are great. Always replied quickly to our emails before arriving, and gave us directions on which ferry terminal to drop off. There they were waiting for us with a pickup to take us to the other side of the island where the hotel is located, and offered to stop on the way at the duty free for our purchases.
The beach feels almost like a private beach, and the ocean in front is great for scuba diving. So many fish, manta rays, corals, everything. A week there to just forget the office life is what everyone needs from time to time.

The chalets are so charming, it felt so relaxing to end a day at the beach and just sit by the porch, enjoying the wind and the sound of the ocean.

Pack your snorkel, diving mask, sunscreen, and above all, repellent, and have an amazing time at this place.

Room Tip: Get a sea facing chalet.

Stayed at Bushman for one week in August 2016. The cabins are located on the edge of the beach and offer a great view on the sea. Interior of the cabin is basic but clean. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back. They offer several snorkling trips, as well as snorkling gear. The Juara beach is a quiet beach, great for relaxing. Be aware that the kitchen/bar is closed between 15.00 and 19.00, so if you fancy an afternoon drink, you should stack up before hand, as alcohol is hard to get in shops on this side of the island.

Went there with Mr Husband just for a short 3 days 2night stay.. very reasonable price for a chalet.
The room was well equipped and comfortable.. I got the 2nd last chalet that was really close to the sea (few step to the water).. surrounded by trees and shaded..
the food was superb.. loved their chicken with peanut sauce.. the pineapple juice is the star of their menu.. not many restaurants around..tried the lunch from neighboring chalet and must say it was disappointing for the price and portion.. it's plus point if you have bike/car to go around..
go during peak time to enjoy motor sports or beach activities..
I went just to escape into nature..clear waters and white sands..
the boss and workers were very accommodating and friendly too..
definitely worth returning..
