Fodor's Expert Review Freddies Santai Sumurtiga

Jalan Bahagia, Sabang, Aceh, 23521, Indonesia

South African Freddie Rousseau owns and manages these basic but sparkling clean bamboo cabins on a lovely beach, all recently renovated and overlooking the water. They have ceiling fans and balconies, and the variety of cabin sizes attracts a varied clientele, from backpackers staying for a month to couples to families with children. The highly regarded Indonesian–Western fusion food is served buffet style at dinner, and there is also a beach restaurant serving a la carte dishes for both lunch and dinner.
