We ate almost ever meal on site at this hotel, why leave! It was so serene and the views were gorgeous. The service and food was excellent, we tried everything on the menu in 6 nights, all was worth it!

Excellent super fresh food and seamless service make Breakfast or dinner is a delightful experience. Tables are available around the adjacent pool or "indoors" with huge sliding glass windows under the thatched roof.
