This is a resort which comes at a very reasonable price in comparison to others. Neat and Clean - but the key to the resort is the amaizng flora and fauna and the fabulous... More

The retreat is beyond expectations. The cabins are all exclusive and our one faced closest to the hills and the balcony gave a beautiful view of the hills and garden below.

Depending on the room, you either have a large balcony or a large window in the room that provides a good view of surrounding hills. The food is simple and delicious; the... More

Can't think of anywhere better to stay for a visit to a big city - it was like walking into an oasis of calm, beauty and tranquility. Everything was beautiful and the rooms (small chalets) felt new, clean & fresh. A kettle etc is provided in the rooms with complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits. There is a great library and free...
