The rooms are really nice and look good. The food portions were really small but the quality was great. There are a lot of bees and mosquito's which attack you. We had a few people who were stung by the bees.

The place is the best getaway away from the buzzling day to day business and work activities. Every inch of service is personalised to a guest need`(s). Melissa and Eric went beyond my wildest expectations.
