We stayed for 6 nights in November. From the moment my boys and I arrived the staff made our stay personable and incredible. The rooms, the recommendations then the bookings, the last minutes call to the tailor, the Vietnamese coffee, the motorcycle ride is only a wee bit of goodness the Merikai offers. Oh, the egg with noodles for breakfast...
