The rooms are super-luxurious - everything has been thought of from the duvets to the bath to the veranda with wooden pillars. The scenery is stunning and from the infinity pool you can see monkeys playing in the trees. The staff are really friendly and helpful.
My only slight niggle is that the food, while good, didn't quite live up to everything else. Also, this kind of place tends to attract rather snooty guests, including a surfeit of NGO types with aid money to spend - that goes with the territory, I suppose.
Overall though you can't fail to love it! Oh, and I recommend the massage in the spa.
