There are several types of cottages from single, one-room affairs to four-room cottages that can fit an entire family and some of their cousins.
Cottages are named after the fruit-bearing trees found on the property. There are 7 bungalows: one room with 2 single beds, toilet and shower. There are 4 garden suites with 2 rooms sharing a toilet and shower. Twin beds in each room. One cottage has 4 rooms sharing 3 toilets and showers. A large cottage on the hill has 3 rooms, each with a toilet and shower. Our new family cottage atop a hill on the western end of the resort offers 5 rooms each with a toilet and shower. *limited airconditioned rooms available.
Minimalist in landscaping, the gardens complement the coconut trees and fruit bearing trees: flowering shrubs lend a dash of color. All furniture in the cottages are of bamboo and were made on site. The "Coconut Grove Restaurant" looks out into the bay and is framed by coconut trees. Sit and watch the dive boats and fishing vessels go by in the morning. At dusk, watch the birds come back to roost in the resort's trees around the restaurant.
Dinner and all other meals are served in the large pavilion atop the resort. Lunch is ala carte as most of the guests are away on some island adventure but breakfast and dinners are usally served buffet-style. Dinner is a great time for socializing with other guests and the rest of the Matta family.
A swimming pool below the pavilion is designed with scuba diving in mind Guests who are still learning the ropes can have their lessons or do some practice dives in the pool before setting out to open sea. On certain nights or whenever the guest wishes, dinner can be served by the pool. Relax at day's end pool-side: enjoy a cool fresh coconut juice at "Water's Edge Bar". Jump into the refreshing water. Or catch the sunset from the end of the pier.
