A lovely quiet resort set away from the busy streets. As soon as we arrived we were greeted with a smile and made to feel at home, pool Very well maintained. Rooms and property is too good . we stay with nature. Food prepared was fantastic.All the staff are warm and courteous. We loved our stay here.

The property is newly built so the facilities are in great condition. The rooms are reasonably large and clean. The swimming pool is however small and gets crowded with 4 people!... More
