Buccaneers has been described as being like a backpackers village because of the way it's spread out over the 8 hct of wild coastal forest right next to the stunning Chintsa beach. Most people say that it's a place to come home to, a legend in it's own time. For us it is home and for the past 12 years we have been sharing it with people just like you - travellers from all over the world.
We like to think that at this stage we know what you want. These are some of the things we have learnt:
Travellers come in all shapes and ages. They tend to fall into (or between) these categories:
-Cool cats
-Cocooning couples
-The jolly festives
-The quiet contemplatives

So we offer choices.......
There's a lovely lively bar which has certainly seen some great revelry in its time. Our stunning tropical pool is a buzzy spot in the summer months when a gorgeous poolside cafe offers decidedly decadent refreshments (including divine pizzas!). And every day we have some sort of free activity so you can chill and meet the rest of the gang.
And for you, the quieter ones, Buccaneers is a haven of tranquility and natural delights - quiet beach walks or canoe trips up the Chintsa river and a secret bird hide on our own dam

Prices are per person per night.
