The bathroom is open to the sky, which was ointeresting until a bird flew in and around before finding her way out. I brushed a 4" twig from the...

We journeyed up and up, round and round and then we arrived at Paradisa Plantation Retreat......Heaven?? Simon the owner welcomed us in and what a warm welcome it was. Our room overlooked the forest where the forest people were doing some controlled burning, luckily the wind was blowing the other way or it would not have been pleasant. Our room...

From the moment we arrived at paradisa the hospitality couldn't have been better. The cottage we stayed in was beautiful and looked out over the mountains. The food was first class. Simon, the owner was a very gracious host and made sure our stay was extra special. I would throughly recommend this retreat.

We just returned from six weeks in India--all in hotels, guest houses, heritage sites. Paradisa was the best of all our stays, my wife and I agree. This remote setting, looking out to mountains, valleys and the sky, won't soon be forgotten. Simon and his staff are most attentive…and we had some of the very best meals here. Book it!...
