We stayed at Poya Lisa for 9 nights in November 2016. In short, the place is amazing value for money, and the staff is super friendly and helpful. To get to Poya Lisa, easiest is to fly to Ampana on Wings Air and take the public speedboat from there. In our case, the plane landing at 11:30 was delayed but... More

Poyalisa is very paradisiac place, on a small island. The staff is very friendly and pleasant. We rent a great bungalow with a view on the sea, who you can see the sunset. And you can make excursions with their boats!

First a tip on getting here from Wakai. Take the Hercules speedboat to Ampana, pay the full fare, and ask to be dropped off at Poya Lisa. This will safe you a couple of hours on a fishermans boat. Only takes 30 minutes, 130.000 IDR. We stayed at a bungalow on the rocky hill with sweeping views over the ocean.... More

Cottages are beautiful, with nice sunset view, private bathroom, comfortable bed with mosquito net. Price in high season 2016: 200.000 idr/person per night, including meal 4 times a day and water, coffee and tea free during the day. Meal is well, tasty, fresh. Take your own toilet paper (but it's also available to buy) and sunblock cream. Employee speak well... More

The accommodation is not the best in the region but Poya Lisa's relative accessibility and range of activities make it a must stay destination. Rooms are dark, toilets grubby, and beds hard. The food is simple, plentiful, and tasty. The beaches are clean and waters clean. The owners offer a free late afternoon snorkel at Suzana and Stefan reefs. These... More

This might be my favourite place on the togian islands. It's a really small island with about 15 bungalows. We stayed up on the hill where you get a really nice sea view. We had turtles and a eagleray swimming just beneath our bungalow. Nice view of the sunset as well. Every day at noon and dinner you meet the... More

My personal paradise. I stayed here almost 1,5 months while I planned staying here only 3 days. It is absolutely beautiful here, the small island is covered with something like 15 bungalows which are separated from each other by quite a bit so you have privacy. Yes they are a bit run down, there are now western toilets in the... More
