Hosted by the charming owner, Patrick, a fascinating insight into the wonderful world of orchids. Very knowledgeable guides and as an added bonus delicious cake to round off the tour. So much to learn a second visit is definitely called for.

We stayed 12 days in this elegant hotel and enjoyed the peace and quiet there. The staff is slightly reserved but competent. Excellent buffet breakfast.

Came here as it's on the hotel tour list. Somewhat dilapidated and staff very laid back. Beautiful orchids and tea on the terrace is lovely.
