The ambience is very romantic and the weather is always cool. The pools gives you a longing of wanting to dive in, relax, reflect and be refreshed. Oh talk about the sound of birds chirping nearby, the feeling is best experienced.

This is a lovely restaurant by Trafalgar Falls. You are surrounded by lush rain forest, which makes this a unique and relaxing place. Both my husband's and mine's dishes were terrific, as was the local bush rum. It's worth it after a morning of hiking!
