Attractive hotel, with excellent staff. Nice gardens, with monkeys and many birds. We had our own little garden villa, with an outdoors private bathroom. The large living area downstairs was not very useful; in the end you were sitting on your bed in the bedroom. Nice meals. Quite some distance from main attractions. Lake should offer opportunities for some walking...

A beautiful setting overlooking the man-made lake, this hotel deserves all the praise it gets. The public areas are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Our room, 308, was a 2 story maisonettes with a large sitting area downstairs and the huge king size bed upstairs. The unusually large bathroom has not only a bath, basin and toilet, but also a...

We can highly recommend this hotel. The setting, rooms, pool,food & above all the attentiveness of the staff was excellent. Unfortunately I didn't have time to use the spa facilities. Many thanks for the cooking demonstration on our 2nd night & providing coconut sambal at breakfast prior to our departure. We would love to return some day.

We stayed with our family and the driver while touring the island. The food was fantastic. We tasted the real authentic food. Lot's of varieties to choose from. Best place to wind down after you visit the city. We stayed in so many places throughout the island before we came here. We loved the shower!!!. It was like a waterfall!!!.

We had a delightful stay with great staff and just a wonderful location. The food and service were both great, room was clean and spacious and the public areas were spotless. For those liking bird life the kingfisher and hornbills were a special treat.

Loved the location and food. Staff were very friendly and catered to everyone's special requests and needs. The outdoor pool was small. We did not use it. There was a weeding reception and it was a bit noisy. Very nice view and relaxing place.
