Great location, serene environment, lovely spacious rooms. top class service from all the staff members especially at the restaurant. We enjoyed the food (had all the meals:breakfast,lunch & dinner). Only downside is the signage which is not easily visible when turning right from the main road. We will definitely be back when with our little one.
