I highly recommend this place for anyone looking to be in touch with nature or simply trying to get a nice quiet place to reflect or... More

I spent two nights in this wonderful place, the staff were so friendly and helpful (especially Filltah who made our booking and checked us in and Tau who served us at breakfast time) and they made our stay comfortable we didn't even feel like we were away from home.
