    This is the second time we stayed at Kalu's, because of its charm. Once you are in you can only hear the nature. The kids love the stream flowing by the hotel. Good service and food is ok. The service standard is maintained every time.

    Yes they do provide driver accommodation but it is sometimes best to phone ahead and check they have some available as they can get very busy at times.
