What we say: 3.5 stars

Take the seaside trail east from Pakarang and you emerge at this small and isolated bungalow spot that's nestled onto a forested hill with a sheltered cove and hidden beach down below. It's a very quiet spot that's a long walk from Paradise, and traversing the trail after dark can be a challenge. Bungalows come in a few different styles, the best of which are perched just inland from the cove. These have woven bamboo walls, soft mattresses with mosquito nets, fans mounted directly over the beds, private cold-water bathrooms and decent front porches. The older wooden huts are dispersed haphazardly across the hillside behind the restaurant. Some bungalows have hammocks, and all have private bathrooms in addition to outdoor showers for cleaning that sand off before you step inside -- a nice touch. The older woman in charge seemed a bit annoyed to see us (or anyone for that matter), but she warmed up after a few minutes. Just don't be surprised if it's a pain to track her down when you want to order food.
