The hotel is designed beautifully, the staff is kind, welcoming and very helpful (especially during covid time). It’s the kind of place where you can tell that the staff is actually enjoying their work. The food was delicious and the scenery was gorgeous. We hope to come back and stay for longer!

The staff at this property are incredible, they are attentive and enthusiastic while being respective of your privacy/space. The facilities (and toiletries) are outstanding and constantly monitored. We gather it hasn’t been open long so there may be some processes/aspects to improve; the restaurant menu is v limited and the private hot tubs are freezing cold, however the overall experience was wonderful. Views are exquisite. Thank you to you all once again.
