The place is by the beach so the view is fantastic. The hospitality of the staff & manager deserve a standing ovation. However, it's sad that one can't swim in the beach at Palassa due to extreme seaweed & threats of sea urchins. To get to white beach, one has to either walk, take a tricycle or an electric taxi (like a tuk tuk in Thailand). Palassa is like a 3 mins taxi drive to Station 1 where beach activities, eateries & pubs are in abundance. I do not recommend Palassa for beach activity lovers but if you are looking for a quiet time in Paradise, then Palassa is highly worth considering. It's definitely value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. Indeed, Bulabog Beach is a very relaxing and peaceful place, especially during our lean seasons. And although White Beach has its soft and powdery sand, we take pride that Bulabog Beach offers a more tranquil and relaxing experience. It’s nice to take a break from all the parties and bars, and to just enjoy nature from time to time. I hope you were able to try some of the water sports available here at the time, but if not, then we’d love to have you back again for more sun and adventures! Also, our sunrises can be quite breathtaking.

Regarding the hospitality of the staff, we are thrilled to hear of your friendly interactions with our staff and concierge. We work very hard to ensure that all guests receive top notch customer service while staying with us.

Hopefully, you'll decide to come back for another stay. It would be a pleasure!

very good staff. helpful. kitchen staff was excellent.....very forthcoming to cook anything we wanted.
just be careful of the agents selling water sport deals in front of the hotel. they can over promise and under deliver.

We stayed the annex of Palassa which is one near Lazy dog bed and breakfast. The place is really nice.It has small kitchen and it got 2 rooms(both with bathroom). Its in Bulabug beach which is like the other side of the island. Its not really busy around this area and we kimda prefer it since its away from all the happenings in white beach area.

Our stay at Palassa Residence was peaceful, filled with huge delicious breakfast platters, and super friendly staff. We loved staying on the quiet side of the island away from the chaos on White Beach. It was close enough that we could easily walk there but we could also enjoy our beach, nice courtyard, and local restaurants (which there are some fantastic ones!). The bed was comfortable. We stayed in the basic studio room which was a little larger than average size for a hotel room.
