Kind of a weird place

The other review is from the owner and isn't very accurate. The place is a bit run down and strange atmosphere, but a decent stay on a budget. They have so few guests that you have to let them know your dinner time so they can plan to have a cook there. The "restaurant" is also the reception area with just 2 tables. They advertise as plant based but many of the options have eggs and they are sometimes confused about not wanting eggs.

For breakfast, there is only 1 vegan option (a green curry) other than the smoothie bowl, but it was incredibly good. Their dinner options were pretty hit or miss, mostly just inconsistent quality but sometimes really good.

They advertise as some kind of creative hippie compound (but also annoyingly push crypto), but at least when we were there it was mostly abandoned and nothing to do other than hang at the pool.

It's a fine stay if you simply treat it like a pretty basic resort and don't have other expectations.

They also don't take credit card and charge 5% for PayPal.

Pros: Fairly extensive lunch/dinner menu

Cons: Expensive, Lots of dishes have eggs, Inconsistent food
