It was cold and raining when we arrived, so we were very happy to find a fire already burning in the open fireplace. A lovely touch. The bungalow was warm and cosy and very private, surrounded by rainforest and overlooking a small lake. The only sounds we heard the whole time we were there were birds, frogs and the rain.
The kitchen was simple but well equipped and the furnishings were all tasteful and comfortable (the king-size bed was nothing short of luxurious!)
The staff were friendly and helpful and respectful of our privacy. They were always available if we needed or wanted anything, but left us in peace.
The best bit though was the large sunken spa bath in the huge bathroom with floor to ceiling windows looking out into the rainforest, and a heated tile floor (really appreciated first thing in the morning!).
The other best thing (if we’re allowed two) was the 12 o’clock check-out. This meant we could sleep in and enjoy a relaxed breakfast (which we made with the local produce provided) before heading home.
We’ll definitely be returning in the summer, so we can fire up the barbecue and enjoy the views from the deck.
