My girlfriends and I have just spent a week at Cocos Padang & thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. We were lucky to enjoy the 60th anniversary of federation of CI. Our 3 rooms were very clean spacious & comfortable as was the bathroom/laundry. Shampoo conditioner body wash were all provided. The washing machine drier was a godsend. We were across from the local hotel we were able to use the swimming pool across the road which was heaven to watch the sun set every evening. The kitchen was clean and plenty of utilities. Free wifi. Thank you Cocos Padang we will definitely be back.
The lodge was very homely, with separate kitchen and bedrooms, although due to its history, one bedroom & bathroom are separate by a passage way. The beds are comfortable, the showers hot. There is a washing machine & dryer, everything you would expect from self-contained accommodation. It was great to sit out at night enjoying the clear skies with a drink.
