We stayed for 3 nights and wished we could stay longer. We had the most amazing time. The Owners suite is huge with a lovely spa bath, home theatre system and the most comfortable couch perfect for a movie night. The massages that you can book is absolutely amazing. Overall a very luxurious, relaxing stay.
