This place was unexpectedly nice. After a three week tour we were suprised that this place was so isolated (January '06) We took a ferry to the otherside of the resort where they had some lovely orange cabanas. The tsunami had destroyed the whole resort and they had started to rebuid it. The restuarant had been built on the old foundations. The chef was amazing and we had four fantastic meals he recommended. During the day there was nothing but relaxation, sun and fresh cocktails. You can cool down in the remote bay near the beach.?It's really near the resort. The tiny palm trees didn't keep the sand cool but I'm sure that in a few years time that won't be a problem. We had a fantastic time here.
