It was a great experience to witness natural selection by releasing baby turtles. Emotional moments, only one baby turtle can survive out of thousands.

We would like to visit Sukamade to see the turtles. Where can we stay to do this in the most easy way. We have heard about something like Hotel Sukamade Guest House, but we do not have an email add. Or are there other options. We are 6 adults and 5 children. We need 3 bedrooms (5,4,2) Best regards Susanne Lindhardt.
