A nice hotel. It offers several options for rooms, many of those are in detached or semi-detached cottages placed in an amazing park. Our room was a one bedroom property with a downstairs sitting room and with a bid bedroom on the first floor, with a king size bed. We had no problems with equipment in the room. As a... More

Hotel situated in a location overlooking a lake blends with nature with chalets under large shady trees. Rooms are well maintained, bathroom clean, (shower area, open to sky and enclosed in the bathroom with plants and rocks gave me a little gloomy feeling. But it may be appealing to a nature lover.). No Wi Fi in the rooms. Not sure... More

stayed here for just one night recently in room 306. While the hotel is nicely located by the side of a lake, our room was very disappointing, and we would have refused to stay in the room for more than one night. Situated at the rear of the hotel and overlooking the swimming pool. the room was arranged with a... More

After that we were looking like move a herd of monkeys, mayby 30 monkeys, through hotel´s area to the forest. Restaurant is very nice with best choices of dishes. There... More

We spent 2 nights here. Our first impressions of the hotel were good enough, a good location looking out across the lake, a nice reception area and a pleasant welcome. The setting of the tiered swimming pools surrounded by the chalets and lush tropical planting is beautiful. Our room (?103) was ok, but the bathroom very tired and in need... More

Loved this hotel! The lobby, restaurant and rooms were beautiful. If you ask for a downstairs room you get an outdoor bathroom, great for people who like feeling in touch with nature and the monkeys sit on-top of your shower (don't worry there is a mesh screen between you!) but take note for people who don't want to be that...

I stayed here with a couple of friends for 2 nights in October with room and half board. We'd usually stayed at Royal Lotus, which was just next door, but shifted to Deer Park since it was down for renovation. The best choice ever. We were greeted with a beautiful hotel entrance and a fantastic view of the lake. It... More
