This is the pick of the bunch for Bingin's luxury resort scene.
A truly lovely clifftop offering, The Temple Lodge is a unique property, with each of its half-dozen suites individually designed and decorated. The best are those perched right on the cliff — with the Coral Cliff actually being carved right out of the cliff itself. Facilities are simple yet stylish and all rooms come with a slingshot to keep the monkeys at bay — don't leave your valuables laying around! The centrepiece is a moderately-sized but deep horizon pool with a medium sized restaurant alongside. Food is exceptional. The views, both from poolside and the restaurant, are spectacular. The cheaper rooms are set towards the back of the resort and enjoy neither the views nor the fresh sea breezes, but they're still appealing, if somewhat overpriced. A resident hornbill, great staff and the chatty family that own this property round out what for many would be a memorable splurge. Try and guess what the jawbone is in the restaurant — we didn't get close. Recommended. Rates are a sample, see their website for details. Free WiFi included.
