No traffic, no tourist boats, nothing commercial at all. It's just the most perfect views of stunning mountainous islands, reefs and wrecks underwater. The room was clean, very spacious, quiet and with a scenic view. The food was very good. The staff are friendly and the owners are accommodating and absolutely sweet. I felt as part of extended family. The...

This team from Denmark knows hospitality. Chindonan has managed to provide great comfort to its guests despite its remote - but spectacularly scenic - location. Rooms are spacious with great fixtures to hang all your things, but bring your own amenities. Food on offer is great and perfectly portioned for the appetite of the avid diver or snorkeler, but choices...

Fabulous location, Great staff- wonderful ambience. 24hr hot water for tea/ coffee- but take your own coffee bags etc, if you are particular. Wonderful meals include freshly baked bread- puds could really do with a little more variety. Good lunches, but if you want snacks take biscuits, nuts, pot- noodles etc. Beautiful drinkable spring water is freely available. Must-do trip...

This resort is like none we have ever stayed in before. It is so peaceful and relaxed. We were lucky enough to have place to ourselves for a night but with only 7 rooms, even if full, this resort wouldn't feel busy. No traffic, no tourist boats, nothing commercial at all....just the most perfect views of stunning mountainous islands. Please...

An off-the-beaten-track island paradise well worth the trip...and for so many reasons. While my husband dived thrilling wrecks, covered with marine life and in sparkling water daily, with only Kenneth the guide for company; for me, as I could only snorkel due to injury, the absolutely sensational snorkelling was far more than I could have ever expected. Whether heading out...

Chindonan Island is about 1 hour boat ride from Coron Town away. The staff and the owner are very nice and try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The small island is perfect to get away from the daily stress. There is no real beach at the resort, but with a short boat ride you can reach great...

Only an hour boat ride from Coron Town. Its the only resort on the island which is secluded from the nearest town. Ideal for divers who wish to visit the nearby wrecks which is 10 minutes boat ride from the resort. So you get into the wreck and out before others arrive.The food is surprisingly good. They serve western breakfast...

My second visit, and I still want to come back again. If you are getting tired of the white sand beaches with coconut trees planted in straight rows, this may be the place for you. A down to earth piece of paradise, delightful buffet dinners, the sea teeming with life and accessible, so that even small kids can peer into...
