Our recent guests sum it up best:

'Jungle Heaven'

'Chez Mu is a dream. I know it can fit a large group of people, but couples, if you want a secluded place with a gorgeous view, Chez mu is for you. My fiancé actually ended up proposing right out on the pool deck in front of the gorgeous pacific view.'
