Accommodation on Rabbit island?

Posted by Sampan on 2/1/2012 at 04:10

Hi people,

I'm looking for information about accommodation on Rabbit island.
The idea would be to stay for a couple of weeks in a simple bungalow (with private bathroom) and just relax. Can someone recommend a especially good spot? And also, is it likely to be full at this time of year?

Any input is highly appreciated!

There are five or six "guest houses" out there. Each one is a collection of bungalows (and the term does them great justice). Some with pvt. toilets, some with shared toilets. Some are individual structures, some are duplexes - two units to a structure. Each establishment has a little cafe along the beach. The beach is very narrow, by the way. There are also massage tables set up by the water, which was very nice.

We were there this time last year and the weather was beautiful. Just show up on the morning boat, go up and down the beach, and see which one strikes your fancy. We stayed at the last one to the left, as you face inland. It seemed quieter down there. The whole beach area, with all accommodations, is probably only a kilometer or so long at the most. Lights go out at around 10pm, when all the generators are shut off. Great sky watching then.

PS: two weeks might be a bit long, unless you really need to vegetate. The island is small and there's not much in the way of diversions. Which is part of the appeal, of course.
