Mantis & Moon BackPacker's The ORIGINAL Surf & Yoga Lodge that has been growing from strength to strength since 1999. The German owner has travelled all over the world, gathering inspiration, to create something unique & spactacular! This is something that you have never experienced before & probably never will! A jungle oasis that feels as if you have fallen into a dream world. A hidden island of bungalows lead by wooden walkways, you would want to get lost here for days. From glass tree houses that allow you to see the monkeys play in the tree tops, to the incredible yoga studio, this establishment has it all. Swim in the rock pool, play a game of pool in the jungle bar or chill in one of our many chill areas, there is something for everone. MAny activities & adventure await just around the corner from the beach...
