If you appreciate nature, tranquility and real downtime, then Galavilla is for you. It is worth every minute drive on real bumpy road up to mountains, yes its hard to reach but who said good things come easy? When you reach you feel you have landed in paradise. Service is impeccable, especially in the restaurant. All the fruits and veggies are coming straight from their beautiful garden. If you book, 2 nights is minimum, with one you will not really get the taste of it.

Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
We had money stolen out of a locked safe, and the management were not interested at all. It was 1 hour trek up a mountain track, which we did not know until we arrived.
