This was a lovely place to stay in a serene setting. I loved the free guided wildlife tours. There were lots of big beautiful Ulysses butterflies around and animals to spot at night. It was peaceful and a great (if expensive) place to stay.

We chose the 'Silky Explorer' package which was excellent value for money including transfers, champagne and canapes, two tours, breakfasts and dinners and an hour spa treatment....

My brother and our 95-year old father arrived at Silky Oaks about 12:45pm for coffee and cake. There was only two people in the whole restaurant at the time. We told "Russell" the maitre de, that we only wanted coffee and cake - what an inconvenience we were! At first, we were told coffee and cake is reserved for morning...

First off, Rose Byrne recently stayed here, if a place is gaining celebrity interest then I think that says a lot! Such a magical retreat. Lovely, pristine cabins. The pool feels like you're in the Caribbean jungle. Tranquil music playing and candles lit in each room as you return from your day of adventures. The hikes around the rain forest...
