Ylang-Ylang Beach Resort Review
Secluded and serene, this tropical resort with a holistic slant, a 10-minute beach walk from town, nestles between the sea and a lush forest. The geodesic-dome bungalows here are snug but charming, with outdoor showers and terraces. Some have ocean views and cozy loft sleeping areas. Facing the beach, a three-story building has two-story suites with balconies, and simple but colorful standard rooms below. Rustic "ocean-view tent cabins"—large tents with beds and decks—offer a back-to-nature experience, but they share bathrooms. There's also a new treetop canopy cabin, complete with kitchen, on a platform high up in the trees; it's perfect for honeymooners. The grounds are covered with trees that hold iguanas, howler monkeys, tricolor squirrels, and an array of birds. Adding to the romance is a jungle-fringed pool with a waterfall. Yoga classes and spa services are offered, and a restaurant with tables under the stars serves some of the tastiest fusion dishes in Montezuma. Much of the electricity used here is solar generated.
