Great romantic stay at a great resort. We truly loved the hiking trails - the waterfall on the route was amazing. Also, we had the most amazing ox-tail for dinner when we arrived on the Friday evening. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

The cottage is so well equipped it felt like home. The experience was a very pleasant one from reception to room service. 5 stars experience in a remote part of nature. The nature walks were pleasant and the infrastructure well maintained.
