I went there because one of the owners was also the adviser for my study-abroad group. It was fantastic- we hiked all over the hills, drank lots of Tusker, had a bonfire, and ate delicious food cooked by his wife! This is really a great place. And that was before the renovations!
A very beautiful, well-priced resort.
