EnjoyEd this place very much. The cabin we were in was a bit rustic and needed a lil more care. but I suppose we came in unannounced .. but I am so looking forward to visiting again. and oh the food was excellent. . very charming place.

“Nice room, just got a bit hot in the daytime , no ac but at nights it was cool and beautiful .”

“Stayed at the Papaya cottage - what a climb! I was with my partner who was on crutches and it was exceedingly difficult. Not recommended for the non-physically fit! But the cottage was splendid and the resort is beautiful. Very warm and caring staff also.”

“Some rooms require a steep walk, I didn't mind that, but check for a cottage with less of a walk if that matters to you”
 of 5 bubbles Y2207OXannc, 13 Nov 2016 | Read review
“The rooms are actually cottages. If you have trouble walking/climbing, you might stick to the cottages that are not in the hills.”

“If you struggle with stairs, ask for a ground-level room or at the very least a lower level (so you don't miss the view).”
