Unique in many respects to include nice interior furnishings, wide open spaces and lovely dining room. There are two dining areas, one inside and one outside patio area. Beautiful garden surroundings to view no matter if you are dining inside or out. Unique furniture and sculpture; all furnishings were lovely. There is a nice front desk area and staff are helpful and nice. A lovely and large gift shop is in the front lobby.
Food in restaurant is very good. Always well presented by smiling staff. All rooms seem to have a view of the gardens and lake. There is a dock on the lake in front of the hotel and a helipad for persons who want to come in by air. This hotel is very impressive. I can't imagine staying in any other hotel in this area.
Rooms are a good size and well appointed. Bathroom is fairly large and has nice quality towels, hand towels and washcloths. Amenities are nice. Pretty tile work in the bathroom that we had. Room had a TV (even though it was small) , a large, low chest on which to sit personal items, a closet area to hang clothes and an in room safe which we used.
Rooms were kept clean and tidy. One small item that concerned me was water that somehow seemed to appear on the tile floor in the bathroom. Perhaps it was because the bathroom area seems to be a humid area, but at times I wondered if a sink drain was leaking. I did take my flashlight and look under the sink but could not see a leak. I wiped up the water from the floor and later on in the day I still saw water seeping from some of the grout in the tile floor.
As we only stayed two nights at this hotel I did not report it to the hotel staff.
All in all this hotel is relaxing and makes for a pleasant stay.
