of the best aspects to Uepi Island Resort is its intimate
nature with 20 guests making for a friendly, but private
if you want, stay.
resort has six spacious, well-appointed bungalows for
families or couples, two units and two guest rooms.
All rooms have private bathroom with ambient temperature
showers and toilet facilities.
