About at fancy as it gets
Easily the flashest spot in the area, Australian-run Baha Baha offers a handful of oversized rooms to rest your head, a large restaurant and bar and a swimming pool in an offbeach, walled-in location.
We were shown one of the large thatch and wooden bungalows which comes with plenty of space on hand, firm raised beds, a flatscreen TV and a large, well-designed bathroom. A string hammock is already strung out front and there’s plenty of room on the deck to relax -- though just a bench seat rather that deckchairs or loungers. The bungalows face onto the lawn garden and restaurant, with the deluxe air-con rooms (which we didn’t see) above the restaurant and bar (which also has a pool table). There is also a tempting but moderately-sized pool on site with a shade palm, a gazebo and some deck chairs around its edge. For the standard, the prices are not unreasonable, especially with the pool. It had only been open about two weeks when we passed through in April 2016. It will be interesting to see if this is the first of a few more midrange spots to pop up in the area. The beach is just a short walk away.
