    Stunning location with amazing views. Breathtaking place to stay to really take in the jungle. Food is delicious and the staff are so friendly. The rooms are boutique and unique rooms although the water was cold in ours. Beautiful pool with great views.

    Hi, the room we had - I think it was the family room - had lots of space and two double beds. The room was more like a small flat. Enjoy, I recommend also eating there. Jorgen
