    Please come if you want a tranquil time with forest and ocean. Nice sea side terrace with interesting guests and nice staffs, enriching a part of the journey. Locating 20mins away from Coral Beach, it’s not easy to walk/ hike everyday between beaches and tank under the sun, but it makes the point to get away from tourism and busy parties.

    Extremely unique accommodation, not for the faint of heart. The tents are roomy and well equipped but get very hot on steamy nights, but do very well in the rain. Grounds are beautiful but fairly far out of the way from main beaches (15-20 min from Coral Beach and 50 min from Long Beach) Not a super fun walk back through the dark jungle at night. Staff is friendly and nice (mostly volunteers). No WiFi but there is electricity from 6-11pm. Overall great for the price but not cushy by any standard
