Lemon Grass Chalet

Set at the base of the stairs that lead up to D'Rock Garden, Lemon Grass has two rows of uber-basic wooden freestanding bungalows facing one another, running back from the beach.

Photo of Lemon Grass Chalet You'd have great views to the water save for the fact the owners in their infinite wisdom have blocked the view with a bright green corrugated iron, ill-equipped toilet block. Seriously -- what on earth were they thinking? Management are friendly enough (signage refers to a mandatory two-night stay, but they let us stay for a single), but the positioning of the toilets really beggars belief -- and the block needs a thorough sandblasting – so bring flip-flops for the shower. On the upside, Lemon Grass is cheap, and cheaper still by 10 ringgit on weekdays. Bungalows have a small veranda with string hammock and are fan-cooled. No WiFi – and no phone, web or email, means Lemon Grass is walk-in only. The restaurant was being rebuilt when we visited and will be finished by the time you read this -- it's well appointed. Overall, if you're happy with frugal lodgings, this will deliver the goods -- just ask them to hurry up and move the bathroom. Noise from the nearby beach bars (which can run well into the early hours) can be an issue. If full, nearby Chempaka Chalet offers similar fare, but overall we prefered Bintang on the hill to here.
