Glad we stumbled upon this place because its an absolute gem.. Green hills on small islands with calm peaceful green waters. Its a great place to just chill and do nothing and enjoy the view - no Wifi or phone reception. We stayed in "A type chalet" which sits on the hill overlooking the lake. Outside the room there's a lovely balcony and shower. Toilets are to be shared. The rooms are simple with electricity provided from 7pm to 8 am. No TV or radios but the view from the chalet makes up for the lack of the idiot box.
The view was simply breathtaking and we could have just as easily sat in bed/ balcony and do nothing for the whole day. The resort provides for meals and activities. There's a hike up to the watch tower (where you may stumble upon an elephant) and to the water falls. We however were easily satisfied with the breeze and view. Would definitely recommend this place to those looking for some peace and quiet or to those who want to run from the crazy hectic city life.. Would definitely come again to just unwind and finish up those unread books!!
P/s - Bring your own bottle of wine as the resort does not provide for alcohol and your own towels.
