Review of Fadhila Cottages

"Worth the distance- it's beautiful"

It takes a lot of effort to get to but is definitely worth it. 
Friendly staff. 
Nice food prepared for every meal.
Incredible snorkelling.
A nice little village just on the opposite island. 
Rooms are simple but fine. 
No fly screens but mosquito nets over the bed work well. 
Only powered overnight not during the day. 
Hammocks on every bungalow. 
So much sea life. 
Diving trips.
No tvs. 
Board games at the restaurant.

"Beautiful cottages on a stunning island"

I stayed here with my sister and mum for one week and it was the most relaxing beautiful place I have ever seen. Not ruined by tourists or the hustle and bustle it has to be seen to be believed. 
There was plenty to do and see especially if you dive or want to try, I just snorkelled and saw amazing sea life that I hadn't before. The place is full of coral and sea animals and there are plenty of island and reefs around to visit, 
The cottages were cute and the hammocks are perfect for reading a book. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served every day in the restaurant and was always fresh and delicious. I will be back next year and I highly recommend.

“a simple paradise !!!!”

fall in love with this little island!!
stunning bungalows, big bed with mosquito net, and the most beautiful view I ever had from my door!!
hammock in front of each bungalows ++
the owner will cook breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, and it's really good!
they offer plenty of activities, we went fishing for 2 hours, we visited the others island beaches, and went swimming with jellyfish.... AMAZING Experience!!!!!!!!!!!
And the bonus we loved, every night we played card with the staff and the other guests! 
There were no electricity during the day, they turn it ON few hours for the night, so remember to charge your battery while you get your dinner cause you don't want to miss a good picture during the day ;)

This cottage is almost private since it is isolated island, just across village. 
It has some cottage which is designed according to local architecture.
Environment is clean, nice, calm and secure.
Just snorkelling in front of it, can find a lot of fish and turtle. 
Cuisine are mainly seafood (snapper,prawn, etc) with national and Western preference. 
Electricity is only available at night and also mobile phone signal. 
It was great but takes time to access from nearest airport.

Stayed November 2015, traveled with friends

“opt for superior rooms rather than standard if you want an inside bathroom and a shower instead of a bucket!”

I loved this place. as food was good and the staff were far more friendly and professional than at Bolilanga resort. I left Bolilanga after one night due to poor food, poor accommodation and terrible management/staff attitude.

Fadhila offers a free kayak, great snorkelling directly infront of the bungalows and it is located on a lovely stretch of sand on a small island (about 6/7 times larger than bolilanga island) only a couple of minutes by free boat pickup from Katupat (the main fishing village of the area where the public ferry stops)
this place is one of the nearest to jellyfish lake and is close to numerous areas of vivid coloured corals and lovely sandy beaches.
The rooms were far better condition and far cleaner and bigger than at bolilanga and there were hammocks on the veranda of the balconies. here as with most of the togian islands only has electricity from approx 6-11pm and 24 hour cold water only. the superior rooms have ensuite bathrooms and a western toilet with chain and proper shower with showerhead, and towel. rooms/restaurant also did not seem to have rodent issues.(this may sound like basic, but is better than most of the rooms at bolilanga resort and neighbouring areas on malengue island... most resorts give you a bucket , no toilet paper , no shower, and your lucky to get a towel! in the shoulder season I negotiated a superior bungalow with 3 meals for a great 180,000 Rupiah a night single occupancy!
Bolilanga only had toilet with a chain and shower head in their topend bungalows and a far higher price with poor food.
