Our stay here was not long enough - just 4 nights but we loved every minute and felt very relaxed on leaving.
This is a home stay, rooms are small but very comfortable. Do not expect luxury. This is basic accommodation but very clean and comfortable. There is no pool, no TV, no fridge, no hairdryer, no kettle, no toiletries provided, no alcohol or hot water. What you will get is a warm welcome and an idyllic setting.
We had a nice room with a large balcony overlooking the garden, lagoon, beach and sea. Perfect for relaxation and bird watching.
We spent our time exploring the beautiful beaches, canoeing up the river, visiting the local small villages and lazing in hammocks. A 15/20 minute walk takes you to the local shop to buy bits for lunch.
Rosi and Nazir are excellent hosts and can make arrangements for you to visit various places. They have a wealth of local knowledge.
The food is excellent, Indian home cooking at it's best. Rosi always on hand to explain the various dishes. Delicious. You sit at a communal table so you soon get to know your fellow travellers.
Wish we were there now, but already planning next years visit.
