The accomodation here is very basic. Wooden huts, with cold water shower, fan and a bed, that's about it! That said, we liked it. Totally cut off from the outside world, no tv, sporadic wi-fi so all there is to do is read a book, stroll the gorgeous beach or swim in the warm ocean. The staff are very nice,... More

Out and away from all hassle! That place is all what vacation is about; beach, sun relaxing with beer and food and no tv. Go there to unplug. If you don't like hiking trough the jungle don't forget to let them know what time your boat arrives, they will send small boat to pick you up. Strongly recommend - place... More

This is a very basic accommodation with very little to offer in terms of comfort. The staff is absolutely lovely and the beachfront is tranquil. It's a quiet place away from everything. Our room had massive infestation with flying ants. Our water, when working, was inadequate. Many bugs around the room as well. I suppose for the price you are... More

I loved this place, at first when we found out it was on the opposite end to the main bit we actually considered booking somewhere else for a few nights but when we got there It was amazing!

I stayed at the Pura Vita Resort on Kong Rong Island for 4 nights in January 2016 and would have done anything to extend! First, let me get something out of the way. I’m surprised there are any negative reviews for the property. This place is meant to be a little rough, simple, austere and embodies the ideal vacation of... More

We loved our time at Pura Vita Resort – what a beautiful place! Easy to get a transfer from the ferry wharf to the resort, and a friendly welcome once you get there. The bungalows are basic but who cares when you are right on the beach? We didn’t have any problem with sandflies or mosquitoes, or any creepy crawlies... More

The beach is very nice and secluded. Pura Vita Resort seems a bit overpriced as there are many other options at a better value. It is a nice walk into town and they also provide a free shuttle boat. Other than the free breakfast, we did not eat at the restaurant but chose to walk into town instead. The biggest... More

We've booked this bungalow through their website at USD35/night. when we arrived , without previous notification, the price has been changed to 75USD/night, so we decided to stay only one night thinking that this place was really secluded,since we came by boat from the main pier. Here's what you get for 75USD/night: dirty bungalow which has not been clean, dirty... More
