I visited Amalurra for the first time just under a year ago and it was just as welcoming and stunning as it was then. The setting in the mountain retreat is stunning with the autumn colours, resplendent in their vivid colours of red, orange and yellow set against vivid green trees and shrubs.
My room was comfortable, snug and tastefully decorated. There was always plenty of hot water for showers in the en-suite.
I do miss having a kettle in the room though to make my own cups of tea.
All the staff are wonderful and go out of their way to provide you with a comfortable stay, even accommodating different dietary requirements in terms of food and different milks.
I tried a massage this year and it was really welcomed.
If you're looking for some real peace, quiet and restoration, Amalurra is a gem but you will require some transport as it's located about 20-25 minutes from the airport along twisting country/mountain roads.
I attended a course there with a group who attend every year and I look forward to returning again.More
