“This was just what we were looking for!”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A quiet restful few days away from the hussle and bussle. Idyllic site overlooking ancient paddyfields surrounded in the evening by the chorus of frogs and cicadas and fireflies. Food was traditional and plentiful and our hosts were simply delightful. Our bedroom was large and comfortable with magnificent views from the balcony.
Our host arranged a lovely cycling trip to three ancient temples, through the most interesting jungle villages. This was like a step back in time.
My wife enjoyed yoga in the Octagon around which they have planted their own tea. My wife also loved visiting the Meditation Centre accross the valley.
Thank you Desmond and Naomi for a unique experience.
