Fairly isolated colonial plantation bungalow
Natscha and her assistant Ajit run this wonderful small guesthouse. If you are looking for an authentic, local experience then stay here. But, it is not that easy to get to, The road to the bungalow is largely unpaved and steep but, for us, that was all part of the attraction. The surroundings are beautiful - lush green jungle, beautiful rice paddies, local temples etc. But, if you don't have your own vehicle then it is not possible to get out at night. The cuisine is local and very good. The pool is quite large and very clean. The bedrooms are basic but comfortable and clean with a/c. Natscha is a fluent English and German speaker and is very welcoming/friendly and informative. She organised daily tours for us - to the beach (about 40 minutes away), a local tea factory, a river boat trip etc. Ajiit is an excellent driver.
