    Give it a try!

    Great food, good service by all staff. Loses some points for a lack of certain amenities usually associated with a 5-star hotel, (ladies shower cap, slippers, robes and not well stocked mini-bar). But overall we enjoyed our stay and thought it was a great escape from the city. Fully enjoyed and recommend the elephant sanctuary associated with the place.
