Glad you enjoyed your stay, we have had quiet a few motorcycle tourists through lately, it is a great island to explore by bike.

A regular (weekly) visitor for great food and wonderful service. Warm fire 🔥 and three dining areas. Food consistently good and sometimes like a revisit to Bali etc. Great for political debates with Mark (owner) and smiles from Amanda Blanca and Sarah 💕
