That's how the manager greeted us as we stepped off the speed boat that had brought us to the resort. And he was right! This is a gorgeous eco hotel - individual "huts " built on stilts over the water. You fall asleep to the sound of the waves and are awakened by bird song. Spacious rooms with an ocean...

You're in the middle of nowhere, awesome traditional built rooms (no nails, no screws). Perfectly integrated into nature/jungle.
