We have never experienced a place quite like Ant’s Nest. They have perfected a ‘personalised’ experience in the proper sense of the word. Everyone working there seems to be on a mission to give the guests their own mix of rest and adventure, learning and...More

I would also say that some places recommendations on tips are quite high, others less so. Ants is on the high side, but that said we tipped on the high side here as they are so lovely.
