My personal paradise. I stayed here almost 1,5 months while I planned staying here only 3 days. It is absolutely beautiful here, the small island is covered with something like 15 bungalows which are separated from each other by quite a bit so you have privacy. Yes they are a bit run down, there are now western toilets in the...

This place has lots of bungalows both on the beach and on top of small cliffs. Common to all is that they are in bad condition. Looks like nobody cares to fix anything. Electricity is the biggest problem: many bungalows were without lights and/or power outlets. Doors of the bungalows cannot be really locked, so customers must rely on honesty...

Very relaxing and peaceful stay on a tiny island. Accommodation is very basic but functional wooden cottages with bucket showers and mosquito nets & cupboards to keep your belongings safe from any rodent visitors! I only saw geckoes during my stay. All meals plus tea & coffee are included in the room price of 160k - 200k IDR per person....

Poya Lisa offers simple bungalows on the rocks and on the beach. It's located on an own island. You get there everything you need (if you don't need your mobile phone, ATM or internet :-)). Take enough cash with you! Food was always enough, there are only very friendly locals working there. They were even searching for the coconut crab...

Arriving at Poya Lisa was the best we ever had, with lunch freshly made for us! Most definately the loveliest staff in the world. Rustic cottages (the ones on the rocks on the left have Western toilets) with mandi. Prices includes 3 meals a day plus a snack, free water/tea/coffee all day. Despite the (very!) dry season, staff really tries...

And the food (3 meals + snack) very nice, although everything has to come from Bomba. There's limited electercity from a generator from...

We stayed there for three days and it was amazing. Nice snorkeling around, very good food and snacks, nice family taking care of everything, and a very good ambient to stay relaxed in this small island with amazing views. We miss the sunsets from our room, always with a Bintang!!

Small island with just couple of bungalows. Very basic standard, but what you need in paradise. Good snorkeling around islands, organised one day boat trips with snorkeling, good food, nice people, laid back and quiet. Bungalows on a hill have great sunset view. There are sometime problems with overbooking, specially in a high season. No wi-fi, nor phone network so...
