I was very impressed with the Kokoro Resort. The guest rooms are huge and have 4 large windows with tinted glass each on different walls. I liked the eco-design and use of timber. My room had a very comfortable bed, flat screen TV, fridge, how-water shower. The resort's gardens are beautiful, with a nice cool water pool plus of course the volcanic hot-springs for a nice warm soak.
The management and staff went above and beyond – couldn't have been nicer. I was very impressed with the standard of hospitality.
The only constructive criticisms I'd make are to suggest they put insect wire on the bathroom windows to help keep mosquitoes at bay, and perhaps to extend the range of the free Wi-Fi beyond the lobby to include the guest rooms.
For the rate I paid, I found the resort to be very good value for money. I booked directly with them via their website.
Would I stay again? Definitely! First chance I get!
