M&A Riverside Beach Bungalows offers four bungalows that are designed for comfort while keeping eco-friendly initiatives in mind.

Each bungalow is a studio type room big enough to fit two adults and three children. Located 30 miles away from the city, the property resides in an undeveloped area that has not been affected by the development of the island, where guests can still enjoy pristine and natural foliage in every direction.
