The large building is the restaurant and downstairs is the bar and nightly entertainment area. A smaller building is reception and there’s a large tent that holds the spa treatments.

WiFi was available in our room; however, we were pretty far away from the main lodge and the connection was inconsistent. I walked to the main lodge to get better reception.
