Guest rooms and facilities

There are 8 en-suite guest rooms, each with its own private terrace/balcony. The lodge runs on solar power and the water is from our own bore hole. During the day the sun will heat the water, but we cannot guarantee that you have a hot shower.

The rooms are surrounded by (palm) trees, bushes and flowers. We can arrange bunk beds in rooms to enable families to stay together.

Rooms have either 2 single beds or 1 double bed (please let us know what you prefer) and can easily accommodate 2 people (with a bunk bed up to 4 people). Each room has a 240 volt power point, ideal for charging mobile phones or camera batteries etc during the day.

The sockets are 3-pin (UK) so for visitors from mainland Europe we advise you to bring an adapter. Mosquito nets are provided both for the beds and the windows. The bathrooms have a shower, wash basin and a toilet.

We will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible by:

  • Daily cleaning of the rooms
  • Every morning a delicious breakfast
  • Room service
  • Mosquito net
  • Welcome book in your room giving you ideas on things to do in the area
  • Laundry service (at a low cost)
  • Wi-fi in the bar area
  • Fantastic staff team who will strive to ensure you have a fantastic stay


There is no electricity or running water in the village of Kajabang & most of Gunjur. We produce our own power at Gunjur Project with solar panels, batteries and a back-up generator. This enables us to have running water, 24 hour electricity in all of the rooms and around the grounds, uses of freezers & fridges and use of computers / music systems. With this in mind it’s important that we manage our power very carefully and as a result of this we cannot permit the use of hairdryers – using one could quite literally blow up the system!

Although there is no safe in each room it is possible to put your valuable documents and money in the safe at reception. We do not charge you for this service.

It is very useful to bring a torch, your own beach towels, mosquito repellent, good shoes/sandals for walking, suntan lotion, sun glasses and a hat to protect you from the sun.
