I was looking forward to staying here and wasn't disappointed. Peaceful and relaxing is the only way to describe a stay at Vivaana. Check in was quick and easy, then the room was stunning and beautifully appointed with great beds, fittings and a modern bathroom. This whole place feels like you have gone back to the glory days of the Silk Road, an amazing restoration. The food cannot be faulted. The village is nice and quiet however expect to be woken early by either the call to prayer or the peacocks. Both started at about 5:00am but after a great nights sleep that didn't matter, so much better than an alarm clock. This is one place I would definitely come back to but for more than one night, there is so much to see and do.
