The view from the room is what makes the stay worth it. However, you pay for this... the service is average and they basically fall short on the rest. Its not bad but its not good either, average with a great view.

Best of the best. We have been on the road for more than 3 months and in many countries. Stayed at many "resorts". 98Acres is the real deal. I could ramble but I won't. First class EVERYTHING. Charming in every detail.

What. A. View. Each building faces out over the valleys. Full length windows in front of the bed, to fully appreciate the amazing views. Wood and stone design very unique.

We did not manage to book a night at this resort, but we walked here for lunch. Food was delicious! The staff are not particularly friendly or helpful though, they are observably much warmer towards resort guests.
