Beautiful setting, unique environment. Place has upgraded considerably since last visited. Concept is great. Enjoyed breakfast, pools lovely. However service very mixed. Check in was lots of negatives. For a ‘health’ resort, don’t turn up here with genuine health issues. There was no bending of the rules as they were too busy. Some staff were very accommodating thankfully, but for what is supposed to be a place to get away from it all and replenish yourself, we felt very much a number. Dinner ran out of half the options so was very limited. While I appreciate the location provides challenges, there is nothing more disappointing than paying for something and getting barely enough. Just felt for the cost to stay and eat here, remembering we all came here for a special experience would be nice.

The room was good except one of the beds was broken and uncomfortable. (The slats underneath had fallen out and the bed sagged) Pools and linked facilities were very enjoyable and relaxing but the restaurant was confusing. Other than an expensive 5 course meal option there was only an option of platters - of which they only had 2 of 4 available. These too were very expensive and not a proper meal. Morning breakfast was good but there were no cheaper options ($25 per head plus extra for tea.) Overall the experience was enjoyable with the exception of food choices and availablity.

Obviously, the draw is the hot springs. Dinner and breakfast were very good. Only drawback is you have to pay extra for wi fi, which we didn’t know until we arrived.

We were in awe of the spectacular mountains. The resort was very tranquil and the hot springs were a great experience, except for those pesky sandflies. The staff were very professional and friendly.
