Grass huts were really unique and very clean. The a/c did not work that well and kept shutting off.

My wife and I have visited this property a number of times over the past 20 years. This is one of our favorite places and properties to visit. The bungalows are so well designed to take advantage of the cross breeze and natural surroundings. The central restaurant is open air with a perfect view of the surf spot and sunsets. The staff are super warm and welcoming. Food is great. Love this place and how it blends in with the natural beauty of its surroundings. Can’t say enough great things about it.
