This isn’t a hotel, but it’s a themed HOUSE you can rent out in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been so I thought it deserved an honorary post.


This is one giant theme experience from the shell-shaped house to the shell-detailed showers and mermaid decor everywhere. The woman who runs the place was sweet and helpful. I loved this experience but have to point out, it’s not a 5-star resort. The beds weren’t very soft, but I didn’t really care since I was sleeping in a house shaped like a freakin shell. The bathrooms there were very finicky and didn’t always work. Luckily there are 3 bathrooms so we always had at least one working. There are 2 sections and 2 bedrooms and a kitchen. It was the perfect getaway for 4 people. I personally thought it was worth the trip and I absolutely loved exploring the island. It felt like paradise!
