    Description

    We are a family that concentrate on business and supporting the community on a 2 acre piece of land. I work with a certain organization that I am the co-founder and partly I spend part of my time working with the family and friends on our organic farm and on our beach plot we are currently setting up a beach club hotel. We are currently having five guest rooms with bathrooms and toilets inside, still continuing with construction.

    We have a restaurant and We are intending to make it an entertainment hub for the Island and promote ecotourism with the Island. The Island has unique feature like the rock paintings, sacred forests, water falls and a good scenery along the beaches and up hill which is well viewed while hiking.

    You can also enjoy swimming, boat ride along the beach and boat fishing.
