          So pretty and nice. Love the property and the service. The only thing that feels off is the guide on the hotel-provided guided walk was super aggressive about tips. He spent the whole walk talking about people who didn't tip him.More

          At this price point, I can't justify spending my hard earned money here. The restaurant is a signature feature of the hotei. I use to love the hike from my room to the restaurantt in the morning. There was nothing like sitting out on the patio, sipping coffee and having breakfast, while taking in the glorious view. Extremely disappointed that this opportunity no longer exist!!
