Family Bungalows are often overlooked due to their tucked-away location set back behind Sanctuary and the Wellness Centre, but, for the area, they’re a good deal for those on a budget.

Photo of Family Bungalows
You’ll find them set down a path through the back of The Sanctuary with only a small faded sign announcing their existence. The reception is part of their shop, which offers the basics and is where the family hangs out, most likely watching television – they’re not known for a great, hands-on guest welcoming vibe!

Two not-so-private bungalows on the walking path site opposite the shop are commonly mistaken to be The Sanctuary’s grounds; a further set of bungalows offering greater privacy are lined up behind the shop. The fan-only rooms are slightly bigger than most in this area and are fairly well kept, with windows on three of the walls helping with natural lighting. The balconies are a good size and have hammocks.

Family Bungalows does not offer a restaurant but its good, central location makes it walking distance from the few others in the area. There is no WiFi either, but being in such close proximity to The Sanctuary, you could use theirs.

If you’re on a budget but want to stay close to "the scene" these bungalows are worth a look at, particularly during high season when everything may well be full or booked – Lovelips is nearby and is another, frequently overlooked, budgetish spot. Both are walk-in only.
