At first we were a little upset that this hotel was a significant distance from the crater park but our two nights there were definitely worth the long drives back and forth. In fact, we would have stayed longer if we had the option. It is a beautiful oasis with coffee plants, organic vegetable garden and fruit trees set among gorgeous gardens with flowers galore. The room we had was probably the largest hotel room we have stayed in, almost like a one bedroom bungalow without the kitchen. We made use of the great outdoor shower (there is an indoor one and a tub as well) and had the fireplace lit each night. The porch was great for sunsets and we enjoyed the dinners very much. Although the restaurant service was not quite up to the standard of the rest of the hotel, the food was very good and it did not detract from our excellent experience.
