The little touches just make this place perfect, the relaxing music to welcome you… everything was carefully thought of to create a beautiful relaxing atmosphere.
The accommodation was immaculate and the kitchen has a great range of appliances. The BBQ and outdoor setting meant we’d actually rather cook than go out!! Just sitting in the hot tub looking across the rainforest was so relaxing and peaceful.
We had an amazing two days here, next time we’ll be staying longer!”
