Little piece of paradise talked away in the southwest of the island away from all crowds; our stay could not have been better. The compound is very well put together and maintained. The are hammocks, swings, many seats in and out of shade, a bar (with the gregarious Anu behind it!) and fantastic views of the ocean. We took the dolphin and snorkeling tour with Ali and had a great time eating lunch on the beautiful sand bank in the middle of the ocean. The food is also always fresh and good!


Promised Land Lodge is a super pleasant place to relax. The staff absolutely could not be nicer. The smiles are genuine and you quickly feel like you are among friends. They build a fire every night and there is drumming most nights. The night sky is impressive and the hammocks are super comfortable. There isn't a beach right in front of the place, but a short walk brings you to a small beach and a slightly longer walk will take you to the village beach. At low tide, you can walk quite far.
