Amazing Hotel
The hotel is really amazing. Perfect place for the family stay. Huge beds, calm area, tree house, swings, and much much more what people with kids will enjoy. When buffet breakfast or dinner offered, it has a big variety of different cousin - European, SriLankan, Indian, etc. Staff was amazing, polite and friendly. Starting from cleaners, and ending with receptionist. Special thanks to staff who served breakfast and dinner. They are amazing. Three nights in this hotel wasn't enough for us. Definitely will return and stay in this hotel again.

Great but remote
Hotel was lovely and the staff were very friendly and attentive. But, the hotel really feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. You can't easily get into town. If you want a get away from it all time then I would happily recommend. Otherwise, be aware that you are limited to the resort itself.
