The beachfront offers you a magnificent view of the ocean and the two smaller islands: Hilantagaan and Virgin Islands.

From the establishment you’ll see small fishing boats crisscrossing the turquoise waters with fishermen patiently guiding them.

From the terrace, visitors can observe the boats moving into the deeper waters for the fishers to catch fish either for their morning meal and/or as their livelihood.

As you enter the perimeter of the resort you’ll be greeted with flowers (hibiscus) that lined up your pathways like servants bowing their heads to welcome the visitors (or master of the house).
