How beautifull and warmful was this place!
We spent time in the leopard suite, whose services were charmfull and refined.
This is incredibly difficult to describe and remember all the tiny elements that created this particular atmosphere, feeling like home, pampered, priviledged.
We would make no comparison with other 5 stars hotels, some impersonnal tourist factory that provided us good services but no human warmth. All have been managed with kindness in Forest Dreams, with great flexibility and simplicity.
We would definitively come back to try the marine excursion as we try the elephant sanctuary (perfect). Or we will try to come back with friends this time, we don't know yet.
Feel free to try guys, it is an awesome timeless place.
