If you want to feel like you're tucked away in the middle of nowhere then this might be a good place for you! However we felt it was just a bit too isolated. To reach the hotel you have to travel 7km off the main road, down the most bumpy and potholes road that i have ever seen. 7km may not sound like a long way but it takes about half an hour just to get down this track and its a pretty uncomfortable ride!
However we were greeted by very friendly staff and a nice welcome fresh juice. Our room was very nice, spacious and with a lovely view over the pool and river. Being right next to a waterfall though it was quite loud, not ideal for a light sleeper like me.
Whilst it was a nice place to relax, there wasn't really anything to do within the immediate vicinity of the hotel, except go for a walk down the track, or a swim in the pool.
When we got back to our room in the evening we found a trail of ants had appeared on one wall and these increased in number throughout the night, unfortunately no one answered when we tried to call the hotel staff so we had to sleep with the ants! The sheets were also a bit old.and stained which wasn't very inviting!
I think part of the problem is that there are a limited number of accommodation options in the area, but having seen the plantation hotel, which was just off the main road, we probably would have rather stayed there! Having said that, it was ok for one night.
