Fodor's Review

Named after a Tibetan Buddhist saint who gained enlightenment in just one lifetime, Milarepa is a perfect place for a French-inspired peaceful renewal, whether romantic or spiritual. The four bamboo bungalows are spaced apart to ensure privacy and are furnished in ascetic but exquisite taste, with bamboo armoires and carved Indonesian wooden beds draped with mosquito netting. Bathrooms are open to the sky, with alcoves for Buddhist deities and L'Occitane toiletries for

mere mortals. Each bungalow has a veranda looking out onto the beach, shaded by a grove of palms and lined with volcanic rocks. Beachfront bungalows cost a bit more than those with ocean views set farther back. A large pool lies next to Soma.
