This is a great place to relax in the middle of the rain forest. Like a safari lodge in Africa with open air (but fully walled in) bathroom. The birds and animal noises provide the most peaceful background music to a cold Lion beer at sundown..except they have no licence so YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN BEER. They don't warn you of that before you arrive, of course.
The food is very good - particularly the rice and curry but make sure you order it before you set out for the day.
