A lovely Dutch heritage hotel with modern amenities and super views of the jungle, pool and lotus pond.
Staff and surroundings were excellent.
Woke up each morning to see lots of tropical birds and lady staff gathering blossoms to decorate the beds in the rooms, etc, looked onto from my room balcony..
Rooms lacked wi-fi, tv, frig and coffee making facilities but wi-fi available in dining area and coffee or tea could be delivered to your room.
There is currently no alcohol served in the hotel but this is due to change shortly with a bar being opened, probably before Christmas.
Buffet breakfast and other meal menus were extensive and of good quality with local and Western dishes freely available.
Nice clean swimming pool and interesting walk up steep climb to jungle beach. You may need a guide!
