Firstly, I cannot rate this hotel high enough. From the surroundings, the resort, the lodges, the food, the activities, the service and last of all the amazing staff.

Amazing property! Recycle and conservation has been used in true sense for theme. Swimming pool with no chemical, rooms and decor has the (luxury) village feel. Warm staff and lovely food, close to the market which also helps stay connected on your phone. Free wifi saves on data.

We hopped into spice village for some continental lunch. Since the place is popular among the international tourists, we expected the restaurant to have a decent continental spread but were dissapointed to see very limited options. The food is average and does no justice to its price. The staff is courteous and rhe the property well maintained. Would have been... More
