Had a wonderful stay in such luxurious and serene environment away from the hustle and bustle, excellent for the body and soul. Our room had the outdoor spa under cover, overlooking the valley and mountains. What a treat! The package included buffet breakfast. And Dinner was divine. Highly recommended.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Honestly quite disappointing. Our toilet was broken on checkin, and wardrobe wouldn't stay shut. The bathroom in dining / common area was cleaned to a low standard. Incorrect / out of date information in the rooms info book and spa instructions. Wallpaper peeling off in room and common areas, signs of mould growth on bathroom ceiling. Soap skum not cleaned off shower lass. Fire in room has a pilot flame which cant be turned off and makes the room too warm. Balcony windows / wall not cleaned regularly, taking away from the view. Balcony doors don't have a latch to stay open. Website said spa was closed, but did not mention the Gym was too. Room service took over an hour to arrive... Paid for a luxury get away for my birthday and all I got was disappointment.
