Great hotel to stay in to get away from the hustle and bustle of the ordinary tourist hotels and lodges. Service is good and staff are pleasant. Rooms are very comfortable and most have very scenic views. The streams flowing across the entire property, from the natural spring located near the hotel, add a very calming effect. Enjoyed my stay... More
