Wow , I was blown away but this resort. From views, to friendly and helpful staff, to cleanliness of the room. Had massage as well and absolutely loved it. The gourmet meals were so delicious and to my surprise they were all included in your stay, breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you are looking for a quiet romantic getaway this place is a must! I will definitely come back. I don’t usually write reviews but i was so impressed buy this hotel. Every detail was taught through. Loved it ♥️

The property is in an incredible setting. The facility itself is beautiful. It is, however, very expensive. The biggest drawback is the food. Very uneven in quality. Breakfasts are good, other food is mediocre. In spite of that, I had an amazing time.
