“peace, quiet and total relaxation”
Reviewed 16 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

If you want a quiet relaxing"away from it all" break I can thoroughly recommend spending your time at Ratnakara. This is a beautiful new build with a fabulous infinity pool which seems to take you right into the tree tops! It is spacious, very comfortable and well equipped with lots of room to spread and socialise...but also plenty of quiet and calm places to relax. A very friendly and attentive staff are on hand to cater for your every need- although there is also a lovely big well fitted kitchen too should you wish to cater for yourself! Ratnakara is situated within sight and sound of a small local beach which seems to be shared only with a few fishing boats. If you wish to travel further afield staff will arrange for a taxi or tuk-tuk to pick you up from the house and later from your destination back home.A lovely stay...I will be back!!

What a fantastic find . Ratnakara is the perfect place for a relaxing , peaceful stay in beautiful surroundings . Wonderful food was provided by our chef , one of the helpful and attentive staff . The house itself is spacious , beautifully appointed and decorated , with a large pool , perfect for lazing around in the heat of the day .

A marvelous stay , and I hope it won`t be too long before we are back again .

Google translate says ...Immense and magnificent house in full jungle, very functional, where the decoration is remarkable with a perfect use of local materials: stone, wood ... The pool and the terrace are grand. The fauna is very close: peacocks, little monkeys, other birds. Exuberant trees, plants and flowers enchant and exude you very quickly. The staff is very welcoming, professional and engaging.


Cher Nicole,
Many thanks for your wonderful review of our prperty and your recent short stay with us. We are delighted that you had such a good time and we hope that we can lookforward to welcoming you back again soon.

Very Best Regards, Ratnakara
