Staying in a hut is such a cool travel experience! It was kind of like glamping-benefits of being in nature paired with the comforts of home. The day bed was a good place to relax during the hot afternoons or watch a rainstorm. We were lucky enough to have a room further back in the resort, away from the road, which was great because we weren’t into late night partying. There were plenty of families at this resort, and it had more of a beach vacation vibe rather than a backpackers party vibe, at least in January.
Note that the traditional hut is not handicap accessible (the bathroom is down the stairs) and might be harder for people who have issues going up and down stairs. The outdoor shower is really nice to start the day with or shower under the stars.
The breakfast included with some packages is ok, but for other meals I’d suggest trying out the variety of restaurants and stands minutes away from the resort for high quality but cheap local dishes and seafood. If you feel like adventuring into the center of the island to see more of the local vibe and get better deals for clothes, SIM cards, supplies, and souvenirs, make sure you cover up and do not wear just your bathing suit. Bring bug spray because they can be as much of a problem inside as outside!More
