I've stayed in this hotel three times and I've been spoilt rotten on all three occaisons. The last time I stayed here was in 2003 with a friend of mine.?We were made to feel like royalty! The food is amazing. Naveen is an excellent chef. Kenneth the manager is fantastic and he handles the guests really professionally. You can also do things with the beach boys.?I did so on all three occaisions. Honda, that's his name, took care of transport for us during all of our trips here. He took us to the elephant's orphanahe and he took us on a boat trip in the mangrove. Pro: the money goes straight to the people here.?The mass tourism in the area and the all-in hotels have really detroyed their way of life. Bayroo is a fantasic hotel to stay in !!!! I hope to stay there again as soon as it's been rebuilt.
