This place is perfection - the property, the location and the friendly professional staff. Food was superb and being right on the edge of the beautiful lake in the waterfront bungalow was like a dream come true.

A great place to stay, just two bungalows which are beautiful in themselves and well appointed (loved the outside bathrooms). A little whine was that the pool was maybe in need of an overhaul. Food was good and nicely presented outside on the lawn by the waterside, candles everywhere and very attentive staff. Breakfast was also pleasant on the balcony...

Our room on the lake was breathtaking an ideal place to rest and relax. The staff were fantastic and could not do enough. The food was so fresh and a great combination of local and western enough to suit all tastes. You can go exploring or just sit and do nothing.

We stayed at Privacy for one night and then boarded Discovery for a 2 night backwater cruise. The area is stunning. The service was great. Unfortunately, the food was just awful at Privacy and on Discovery. My husband and I were ill for our entire stay and ended up eating fruit.

We were only able to stay one night sadly but it was sheer bliss; private with discreetly attentive staff, gorgeous rooms, excellent food, and a fabulous view across the lake from the garden, pool and rooms.

We booked this at last minute (the night before!) and it lives up to its name of Privacy - even the taxi driver couldn't find it! It's just three bungalows on the side of a lake and it is stunning! We had half of one bungalow which faced the pool and the lake, the view was beautiful. Our bungalow was...

First night on Discovery was fabulous although we thought the bathroom was pretty grotty and the a/c only worked when we were moored up (which made it v claustrophobic when we had to sit inside during a storm). Otherwise the staff were very friendly and offered wonderful service. The food was also wonderful. Next two nights in the Lakeside suite....

I would really like to give this a good review; it tries hard but isn't quite there. First impressions are pretty good. Although the boat is unusual, the location of the hotel itself is stunning. Our first night (New Year's Eve) was on the boat 'Discovery'. The first disappoinment was that it was still being cleaned and prepared from the...
