Sea Gypsy Village is set in a 5 acre clearing of jungle with plenty of shade trees and garden. The beach is approx. 350 metres long and has soft golden sand which continues out into the sea making swimming both safe and comfortable. 


There are 22 Malay style wooden chalets on stilts with bathrooms en suite. Each is sea facing and has its own private verandah. Six of the chalets are purpose built for family bookings (6 people), i.e. adjoining rooms with a double bed one side and 2 bunk beds the other side, one bathroom on the back and one verandah on the front. Five of the chalets can accommodate 2 extra beds, nine can accommodate 1 extra bed. The other two are doubles. The decor is simple but adequate and in harmony and keeping with the natural style and colours of the environment. There are large overhead fans and 24 hour electricity rather than air conditioning. There is absolutely nothing nicer than going to sleep with the windows open listening to the sound of the ocean and the rustle of the palm trees. That's what an island holiday is all about !

Each chalet has a private verandah with sea view and an overhead fan, bedside lamps,  shelves, hanging space & hooks. Mosquito nets, linen, bath towels and beach towels are provided. Bathrooms are en suite with overhead shower, hand shower, sink and toilet. On request the resort provide booster steps for toddlers to reach sinks, baby baths & hooded baby towels, cots with mossy nets, bed guards and even soft cosy baby blankets.


There is a small shop in the bar which sells a selection of toiletries, various sun-lotions and potions, postcards, films, cameras and batteries. It also carries a large selection of crisps, Pringles, nuts, biscuits, chocolate, sweets and even raisins, so once again don't bother to carry all that extra luggage. (As a bonus it prevents little 'jungley creatures' enjoying snacks you may have in your room !) The Bar Shop also sells ice cream. The big shop at Linda's house sells T shirts, polo shirts, singlets, caps, sarongs and various swimming aides and beach equipment.

The Dive Base
