“A passionate love story with Nature” is stamped on Bo Resort’s business card and it’s exactly right.
The grounds have been kept as natural as possible, and guests can have a rustic romance with one of the 20 inviting and creatively decorated wooden bungalows that dot the jungle shrouded hillside which slopes steeply down to Ong Lang Beach.
Rooms have an air of the bohemian, with beaded curtains in the doorways, brightly painted doors, blue and yellow window frames and some with palm thatch roofs. They're light and spacious, with large decks, comfy beds and spotless bathrooms. The rooms are set apart far enough to really get a sense of privacy and wilderness. While you do get a fan and hot shower, it is otherwise void of modern-day distractions such as television or phone. WiFi is available only at their breezy beach bar/restaurant. Mere steps to the water, the restaurant serves pan-Asian and French specialities with mainly local products. A breakfast is included in the rate and they often have an excellent stay three nights, pay two offer.
This is the type of place to listen to the birds and hang out on their quiet, private section of white sand (which of course has plenty of loungers, palm-thatch umbrellas and kayaks), taking in the view and basking in a gorgeous sunset. It goes without saying that you need to love nature and all of nature’s creatures that may hang out on your front porch and walls. If that sounds more like hell then heaven, this place isn’t for you. This resort is also not for those with mobility issues or those who have difficulty with steep stairs. One must be able to navigate on the resort’s many uneven stone stairs and walkways for a comfortable stay here.
