The whole experience was idyllic, the floor to ceiling glass doors looking out to verandahs surrounded by rich rainforest in a lovely secluded area at the foot of the foot of the mountains. Diane is a fabulous hostess - she spoiled us with great breakfasts including a wonderful fruit platter and choices of hot food, toasts and cereals. Great local... More

We stayed at this place for 3 nights and it was a fantastic and magical experience. The rooms are very clean, big and fitted with great love and care for details. The bathtub is huge and the view amazing, from the bed directly into the rainforest. There is a big swimming pool, always clean and fresh. It has an "infinity"-view... More

What an amazing place!! Gorgeous setting, very private bungalow, beautiful pool and Diane is a wonderful host. She thinks of everything, from helping with tours to recommending the best Thai food outside Thailand. Breakfasts were fantastic and fresh and the candles by the pool at night were a special touch. We loved our stay and just wish we'd had more... More

Beyond our expectations. This B&B is a hidden gem. Dianne is an excellent host, nothing is too much trouble. I had a special request before we even arrived - it was to be a birthday surprise - and yes, it certainly was, as Dianne added her personal touch and made it extra special. The scrumptious breakfasts and delectable fruit platters... More

My husband and myself arrived with perhaps higher than normal expectations of this property and what it had to offer, due to the reviews we had read on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed at all, Dianne is an amazing hostess and went above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure our holiday was absolutely perfect. The Pavillions are wonderful,... More

Stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of June. The pavilions are really lovely, self contained and very romantic. Diane was a wonderful host, nothing was too much trouble, she assisted us a lot and was genuinely kind. Would have loved to stay longer. We left at 6am on the last morning so Diane brought us some food the... More

Nice and relaxing atmosphere, quiet, good for one who is on a budget, location is perfect and yet close to everything (shops etc.), Diane is the perfect hostess along with her knowledge of the area. This place is great, we will be back for sure and definitely recommend to our friends.
