About
Description
Our lodge comprises 8 Mediterranean style villas, a large swimming pool and restaurant. It sits on a small peninsula inside a fresh water lagoon bordering it on three sides and a Pacific Ocean beach 200m across the More lagoon, accessible by our boats and kayaks. We run on solar power, our water is from a fresh mountain spring and we produce fresh food daily from our biological garden. Less

Thanks again, Rob. Much appreciated. Forgot to mention our pool bathroom earlier. The design is based on an old Confucius saying: "When man go pee, beware mango tree!" :) Come visit us again anytime, ok? All the best.
