This was from start to end an excellent stay at the bungalows. I'm writing this almost a full year after traveling, but I still remember a lot of the details since it was so memorable. When we first arrived we were greeted by the staff and served a cool, homemade beverage. We were then led to our rooms where everything was clean and ready. They were always there and helpful when needed, but did not insert themselves when you were just trying to enjoy yourself.
The food was custom made and they were more than willing an able to accommodate my dietary restrictions.
Finally we took the tea tour and our guide was knowledgeable and very much into what he was telling us.
The only downside to this is that it isn't the easiest to get to for anyone with any sort of budget. While you could fly in and land on the lake you'll more than likely be taking a long train ride, long bus ride, or long taxi ride to get here. It's through beautiful (if not frighting) mountains at least.
