However under the new management, Edward has done an excellent job with this resort. The grounds have been wonderfully replanted and the buildings refreshed, inside and out,... More

We had the opportunity to stay at the resort and we were welcomed by an awesome staff. The pool side is very private and the staff makes your stay very enjoyable. The details of the frozen grapes and cold towels infused with lavender scent is a great amenity.
