If an island holiday is all about the seaside for you, Escape Beach Hotel will have the sand between your toes and sea views from the boudoir for a very reasonable deal, especially if you can live without air-con.

The hotel is built in two sections, divided by the open restaurant, set back about 50 metres from the seafront in grassy, sandy grounds speckled with casuarinas and coconut palms, ideal for kids to run around and let off some steam. There’s no sandy beach to speak of, and it’s not great for swimming but pleasant enough to dangle your feet for a paddle from the low concrete barrier wall.

The main double-storey brick building offers glass-fronted rooms with balconies running the length joined to a spacious furnished round double-storey open pavilion, perfect for curling up with a book or partying with your friends. The other building is a simple single-storey long house block.

Interiors are bright and airy with tiled floors, exposed brick and terracotta painted feature walls with dark wooden furniture. Decor is a little heavy on the browns for our taste and perhaps a tad tired, but white linen and blue bed covers give the room a lift, and it’s all about the sea views anyway. A tiny TV offers an alternative to the ocean vista.

Plenty of space for the kids to exhaust themselves.

Standard rooms provide a fan or air-con, and deluxe offer more space, more windows and air-con only. Ensuite bathrooms are small, basic and clean enough with cold-water showers, but are equipped with Western-style flushing toilets, hand basin and a shower curtain to keep the seat dry. Furnished balconies sport wooden tables and chairs, but they are looking very weather worn.

Friendly staff struggle a little with English, but can communicate enough to help arrange activities. Breakfast and WiFi are included in the rate, however the WiFi doesn’t quite reach the rooms, but is fine in the restaurant.

Escape Beach Hotel is well located and for the price, a great deal. If you would prefer to sleep by a beach you can swim at, basic huts and a remote location give Bunga Jabe a real desert island vibe, while for a more spendy option, Breve Azurine Lagoon Retreat will appeal.
