What we say: 4.5 stars

With its rustic but comfy bungalows and scattered ox-wagons nestled amid isolated Ong Lang beach, Mango Bay has the feel of a beachside plantation -- and to an extent, it is, as much of the produce served in the restaurant is grown organically on site. Their environmental credentials don't stop there -- they also heat their water with solar power and let cows keep the lawns trimmed rather than using gas-powered mowers. As admirable as that is the environmental mantra seems like a reason to give you less; your room will be without TV and air-con, and showers are only hot on sunny days. If you can survive without those creature comforts, Mango Bay offers some of the hippest, most comfortable lodging on the island, and they do offer free WiFi to keep you from feeling totally cut off from the rest of the world.

There is an eclectic range of accommodation: some very attractive cabins made of rammed earth, "fishermen's cottages" in dark wood and simpler rooms in a wide-verandahed longhouse. Furniture is attractively basic, with white cotton sheets on dark wood beds. All but the verandah rooms have luxurious open-air showers. The gorgeous oceanfront restaurant has an excellent and well-priced menu with one of the best dessert menus on the island.

Keep in mind that the location is pretty isolated down a long, rough road on a private (and gorgeous) kilometre-long stretch of beach, so you'll likely have to take most of your meals on-site. Kayaks and snorkel gear for exploring the nearby reefs are also available. The resort is often fully booked so reserving ahead is recommended.
