We upgraded to the Villas as a special treat to ourselves after a hard and tiring year. It was worth every cent, a very special place! The villa was spotless and huge! It had everything and offered privacy and quietness at all times. The staff were also very attentive and friendly at all times.

The villas are fantastic with direct access to jacuzzi, private and main pool, you can also swim to the pool bar. The interior is breathtaking and you feel at home immediately.

One of the most beautiful hotels we've ever stayed in! We chose the Baray Villa for two reasons- firstly, because of its beauty, and secondly based on some of the amenities and features of the villas themselves. It turned out to be even more beautiful than pictures could capture. Quite a peaceful oasis filled with gardens and ponds, it was... More

The staff are excellent. The rooms are divine, like stepping into an ancient palace hidden amongst a sculptured jungle with water features everywhere. Stepping in here, any noise disappears and is magical at night. The food is delicious.

Location is great. Rooms and villa are a dream. Can't believe some reviewers said negative things about this place, it's just perfect. The cooking classes are fun too. Highly recommended place for families or couples.
