Soothing eco-friendly retreat

What we say: 4.5 stars

Upon setting foot in this classy, eco-conscious guesthouse, we were soothed immediately by its air of sophistication. Orchestral music sounded softly from the wide, dark wood terrace perched over seawater that lapped amid the mangroves and fishing boats nearby. Upstairs, the "Attic Relax Zone" entranced us with numerous hammocks, cushions, scented candles, tasteful Buddha images and a quiet massage area. Together with tropical plants and fountains, the abundant use of bamboo, rattan and wood reflect a minimalist design that's reminiscent of traditional Chinese art. A true boutique guesthouse, the hideaway offers four rooms that are perfect for couples seeking quietude and romance. The cheaper rooms are on the small side, featuring muted light green walls and opening to a lovely garden area. A larger room with glossy wood floors has its own large private wood terrace. But the real prize is the "Mangrove Duplex", an impeccably crafted suite with a spiraling wood staircase that leads from a large ground floor living area that can be converted into a bedroom, up to a loft master bedroom with olive green silk cushions to compliment the sumptuous wood craftsmanship. Along with natural stonewalls and basin sinks in beautiful bathrooms, all rooms come with air-con, TV, fridge and kettle. The Hideaway uses only organic/natural shower and cleaning products, and is committed to sustainable practices like recycling and proper sewage management.
