We stayed in the Cabana Spa Cabin for a weekend and felt the accommodation to be very sub-standard and extremely overpriced with very little privacy especially as it was against the pool. We had to shut the curtains to the lounge and escape to the balcony, where the wooden latch barriers were not entirely private, especially when in the spa. The decor was not comfortable and the lounge was designed poorly in terms of the layout and relaxation. The only spot to really relax was sitting on the bed due to the bad layout. The outdoor spa and view was lovely to the hills, but inside layout was not luxurious at all. The bathroom seemed to be the only renovated area and upon entering the accommodation we were immediately disappointed. We spent most of the weekend out of the cabin, as it was not comfortable. The tropical fruit basket was underwhelming and the place was really cold, despite blankets etc. I think this is more like a cabin and less like a spa retreat and should be priced accordingly. As an aside I would not classify this as a gay friendly or private retreat.
