Just one night here but very pleasant indeed. The " village" is just a well-spaced series of luxury, if sparsely furnished, houselets in a sylvan setting making for a pastoral atmosphere. It's on the edge of a fairly primitive village which makes for an interesting morning walk. Apart from the centrally-located restaurant there are few if any extra facilities. The restaurant itself does good meals but, strangely, is located a distance from the kitchen. The friendly and efficient waiter does his best but has to carry trays from A to B by which time the food is cooling off somewhat or the fried eggs congealing. There must be a better system than that!
The hotel is near the popular and well-worth-visiting orphan elephant sanctuary and a good stop-off for it. There was a "protest" going on, blocking the main road on the day we arrived but by very skilful navigation along byroads our driver got us to the sanctuary on time.
We'd definitely stay here again.
