Stayed here while on a Caravan tour. What a lovely garden and pool. Otherworldly views of the lake and the volcanoes from my clean and comfortable room. The restaurant food is very fresh and well-prepared. The staff is super friendly and helpful.

In a former life, this hotel was an expansive coffee plantation. Now it serves as a spectacular destination for weddings or a restful vacation spot with family and friends. Surrounded by...

I've stayed here 3 times and just love it. Beautiful rooms with views of the lake and volcanoes. Comfortable beds and fluffy towels. Lots of folk art and antiques around. The gardens are just beautiful and enjoy seeing the resident birds...toucans, scarlett macaws, parrots and peacocks. We also saw a monkey this time...must be an escapee from the nature reserve...
