As this is an island, there can sometimes be issues with electricity supplies, though we try our best to make sure you have electricity all night in your bungalow. Please be patient and tell reception if there are any problems and we will try our best to sort them out for you. Also, please mention to reception if you have run out of water (especially during the dry season) and our staff will try their best to sort this out for you. The problem can be resolved most of the time, but we ask guests to respect and understand the environment you are in.
We do NOT allow you to keep food in or outside your bungalow as this attracts the monkeys and they will come into your bungalow. Moreover, we do NOT allow you to bring your own food to the island to use in our kitchen. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please contact us well in advance to ensure we can meet your requests.
