"Great staff that treats you like family"
It’s a quiet place to get spiritually grounded and centred. The Yoga was awesome, the instructor even better. The guides on the excursions were knowledgeable and very helpful. I will be returning soon. 5 stars, oh and the massages were top-notch as well.
" Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Jungle Bay!"
I arrived right after Jungle Bay's official grand opening. I had lovely villa #10 and loved the decor, seclusion, & fantastic views. I especially enjoyed the shower area that felt more like a private sauna. The staff throughout the resort were friendly and always asking how they could help. The food was good and enjoyed the cooking class too.
