Simply the most beautiful place I had ever been. The most markble experience I ever had talking about the kindness of the employees and staff members. The meals are always romantics and with a first class chefs food. The 200 dolar pizza is amazing, you need to try it. The rooms / bangalos are dreamble ! 👏🏻
