Spot on
Excellent hotel, service spot on. Beautiful gardens, villa very nice and well maintained. area nice too for backwaters and hotel has a great private backwater trip you can do. THey also do a complimentary sunset cruise on the lake. We had a lake view villa with private pool. Very nice but bear in mind that the pool is at the back of the villa and for privacy surrounded by high wall. no lake view from private pool but still very nice to have and to relax. It also had a jacuzzi. If would probably requested villa no. 106 for return visit. The 'meandering pool villas' also looked nice but i think you would need to request unit 144 which had fab lake view and private shady gazebo. Food excellent - both restaurants were very good and we noticed a higher quality of food here compared with other hotels we had visited (4 and 5*). Great place to relax after a tour of the region. Would certainly recommend.

Hope to Return
Heaven on Earth. My wife and I stayed for 4 nights although we wish we could have stayed longer. We arrived at 9am and our room was unexpectedly made available at 10am even though we hadn’t informed the hotel in advance. We only ate in the Seafood Restaurant so can’t comment on the buffet, service was excellent and the food was very tasty. There was a long happy hour, 11am-5pm with 241 on locally produced alcoholic drinks. Afternoon tea is complimentary and the sunset cruise is a must, the local musicians were very calming.
