After the fantastic views, the chief asset of Villa Retreat are the staff. All are friendly and keen to help. The hotel is situated at the north end of Coaker's walk so you may take breakfast with the same scenic outlook. Take a room with view if possible as those without can be a bit cold and dark.

First of all the Valley View Mini rooms had an awesome nature view, though the rooms are small but good enough for a couple. The staff are awesome people. They...
