Confusingly this is listed as Shangri La on TA. The theme is Flinstones meets resort, but in a good way. The grounds are beautiful, tropical and well maintained; the ground is a tapestry of grass; hammocks swing in the gentle breeze. At night, fire flies come out to play, their green orbs mysteriously sparkle in the gloom. Our hut was a kind of adobe, 10 years ago would have been a major hit, now, it was a little tired. But the toilet was fantastic, open to the elements full of plants; at night a giant snail regularly appeared on the sink; marching across many trails were determined armies of ants on various important missions. The manager was delightful and helpful, a huge smile of her face, I was always happy to interact with her as I knew that I was see those pearly whites. The only downside was that the internet was virtually non existent during our three nights; and the laundry didn't appear laundered, maybe just washed in water. These were small minuses that didn't early matter.
