5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This hotel was just something very different and we loved it! We've told all our friends about it since we got back! There's not much space in the room admittedly, which completely suited us, but for some people this may be a struggle, particularly if you have lots of luggage or children. If you're travelling light and solo/couple, this place is lovely. There is a nice infinity pool. Breakfast was ok. It was nice being in the tranquil jungle. It is quite a long drive from the airport, but was relatively cheap to get there. Overall, a few good experience for a few days!

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

It more suitable for couple or youngsters, as it was not kids friendly, as the safety for kids is low. My youngest son fall from pool while sitting on the side and high on floor full of sharp stones, luckily no needle need for the wound. As for the breakfast, it was expensive for my kid as I pay my 5 years old boy breakfast and not much choices to take. It's a place not suitable for family with kids, but might be good for couples.
