If you are looking for a very unique place where you could reconnect with yourself and nature, this is the place to be! This is an eco-camp so facilites are not as fab a a five star hotel - but that's the point! I really love how the chalets were made - from natural materials! The staff were friendly and attentive and even waited for us to arrive (which was way after the check in time). We woke up to one of the best views we've ever seen! There are communal areas where you could take a shower, cook, and hang out! I must say, I really really enjoyed my time with this property and will definitely come back!
