Areena is a beautiful resort in a tranquil setting. It is an ideal place for bird watchers. There are many interesting activities for both adults and children. The staff is friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Amazing place for a family. We will be back for sure, although never soon enough!!! Out of peak season was amazing as the peacefulness was exactly what we where looking for with feeling safety was in place for the kids.
