Wonderful place far away from turistic center of Bohol. I spent here 10 amazing days. It is small hotel with just 8 nice and large rooms. Resort is located just in front of sandy beach on the coral reef. Very good staff. Peter owner, Archie and their team are really helpful. Big infinity pool and big garden available for the guests. I also have to say that resort offers very good a la carte restaurant with wide range of food ( we tried a lot and everything was delicious). Also wine selection is very good :- ). If you would like to learn scuba diving it is very good opportunity because on the place is scuba diving center ( I tried, amazing).
To summarize, If you are looking for not crowded, quiet place, close to nature and additionally with good food, wine and nice jazz music it is the only choice :- )

A beautiful setting with great restaurant, bar and pool, the most amazing selection of international wines, good food selection from all over SE Asia, long beach walks at low tide and snorkelling right at the front door and absolutely best of all - no kareoke!
We WILL be back!

Room tip: Ask for one of the villas - more expensive but definitely worth it

Hi Steve. Many thanks for giving us top marks. You certainly note the things we like: the food, good wine, the beach, snorkelling, and the absence of raucous and intrusive forms of entertainment. We just like to have fun without headaches. We are all looking forward to your next visit. Warm regards from all of us.

You will either love it or hate it. Go there if you want peace and serenity. Don't go there if you seek glitz and excitement. Go there if you love jazz and good food and wine. Avoid it if you want rock & roll and fast food. Go there if you want to be next to the sea and coconut palms. Don't go if you mind being at the end of a rutty dirt road that takes two and a half hours to get to from the airport. Go there if you want top class diving and beautiful sunsets. Avoid if you prefer watching TV (not available). Everyone will like the attentive, personalize service and clean, comfortable accommodations.

Dear jsltko, Thanks for taking the time to review us.

You are quite right that we are not a place for everyone, and we would never try to be. Rather, we want to attract travellers who appreciate natural beauty and who are looking for a place to truly relax, and we want to keep our place quiet and beautiful so we can also enjoy it along with our guests. So we do avoid some of the things that you would find in other hotels and resorts, but which we feel detract from a relaxing stay: There is no TV in the room (or the room next door either), and we don't like devices in the restaurant, and it is quiet jazz in the evenings, not the "I Did it My Way" crowd on a super-loud karaoke machine.

As you say, definitely not for everyone, but you gave us full marks, so I am glad that it works for you. Come back and see us again when you can.

Best wishes, Peter

We originally booked 3 nights here but ended up staying 8 as we enjoyed the place so much. The accommodation was great for our family of 4. The kids had their own beds, often they had to share, and there was still plenty of room to store bags and move around. The room had everything we needed and more. We made use of the resort's kayaks every day to head out for a snorkel and spent many hours in the beautiful pool. The staff were great. Little things, like unexpectedly bringing out drinking water while we were at the pool and asking daily what time a room clean would suit us best, helped make this place special. We most definitely recommend this place.
