This resort boasts wonderfully appointed rooms. It at all possible, book lagoonfacing and first floor. At times it is rather exposed to the wind, but the view makes up for it. The golfcourse is very interesting, in very good condition and well organized. The restaurant has a stunning view.

Surrounded by nature, with the most spectacular view i can recommend this to any one, no matter what age. The luxurious rooms are spacious, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the food on another level as always. Thank you Simola for treating us like royalty every time.

Apart from the breathtaking views, surrounded by spectacular visual pleasure, a highlight of our year. We've had the pleasure to be spoilt by Simola and their most professional and ever so friendly staff. A big thank you to Janus and his team who's always exceeding our expectations!

The winding road implies a great view but expectations are surpassed when you reach the top, absolutely beautiful. The staff are all very friendly, the rooms are a home away from home and the facilities are 1st class. The golf course looks incredible which I will return to play. This was a family trip and Wilhemina the babysitter was fantastic... More
