Absolutely gorgeous luxury experience. Honestly probably the nicest place I've ever been to. The staff was so incredibly well trained and nice, almost to a fault! The views are like none other. We felt like we were in a James Bond movie. If you go for lunch (like we did), beware: it's pricey!! I was a bit surprised that they...

The hotel, staff and location by far exceeded my expectations! The grounds and room were immaculately kept which coupled with the incredible views was unbeatable. You can just count on the staff there to take care of everything before you even ask. The food was amazing as well. I can vividly remember enjoying some time on our porch after dinner....
