This was by far the most amazing place I have ever stayed and the staff are incredible. Had 3 butlers at our beck and call who could not do enough for you. The rooms are clean and spacious. And the food...sensational. Didn't want to leave and would go back there tomorrow

I feel I could write a lot on this wonderful hotel and it's stand out people, which despite the hotel being surrounded by nature's finest (it truly is a lush paradise) -it is the staff that are the stars of this show.
