Great place, still in the throws of doing it up which will take a while but this doesn't detract from its character. No longer managed by Hilton Nice pool and restaurant, nothing fancy but quite adequate. Buildings are similar to traditional longhouses, there are trips available to real longhouses which are fun to do. wifi can be iffy but it... More

The hotel is situated right at the beautiful lakeshore a 20 minute boat ride from the road. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel's restaurant is the only one within reach and it offers both nice local and western food. We had booked the half-day longhouse trip. We took a longboat-canoo from the hotel to the longhouse, where... More

Very beautiful and sorrounded by nature although the resort need a little bit of maintenance. Just a tip: the buffet dinner is not wonderful and opt for a menu a la cart is cheaper and offer higher quality food ( a la cart dishes are all very good - also pasta)
