This is an exceptional place. Na Bolom is a beautiful building filled with unusual exhibits and marvelous photographs. It is an authentic, completely unstaged experience. The little garden cafe is delightful. The rooms are attractive and spacious.

For that level of detail, and this time of year, I suggest your Google Na Bolom and email them directly. The answer they give will be more correct than my guess.
