    The guest villas are the most luxurious we have ever experienced! Overall food quality and choice was excellent but the decor and ambience of Terra, Yasmeen and Li Long needs to be addressed.

    Fantastisk service, renhold og lokasjon, men ekstremt dyrt. Fullt monopol når det ikke finnes andre hotell på stedet, så prisene var overrasket dyre. Brukte gjennomsnittlig 1200 USD per dag for lunch og middag som ikke var inkludert for 2 voksne og 1 barn, da med 1 flaske vin til middag.
