Lakeside hotel with strong eco credentials despite the luxurious environment (oxymoron?). Separate beautiful cottages in extensive treed grounds provide a tranquil and restful stay. Lovely pool with extensive views and a bar, butterfly area with occasional minotaur lizard and lots of terrapins, brilliant yoga and meditation centre,
ayurveda centre, cooking and sari tying demonstrations,trips all over the place - the list goes on and on! the main restaurant is outstanding in its quality of food, service and its live music. The fish restaurant was also superb. An ideal hotel to end our travelling holiday.

Room tip: Lake-side is good but our central room was no loss.

Leave aside the magnificent location, the beautiful rooms that ooze class all the way, or the many lovely experiences they offer you .. what was most mind-blowing was the level of service .. among the best, if not the best, we have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Oh those million-dollar smiles of every one of their staff - yes, every single one. I wish we could carry these smiles back with us!! And no request was too much for them.

We stayed in the lakeside villas which are not only beautifully constructed – but offer unspoilt views of the lake in the front while sitting under beautiful shade trees, and of the rice fields/fish ponds at the back, with a little private pool. Highly recommended.

And last but not the least, the lovely flute music played by the elderly gent was such a beautiful welcome ..

Transported to Island Hotel by boat and welcomed into reception to the sound of traditional flute music. Food excellent and staff very helpful and pleasant. Traditional massage has to be experienced. So many little pools and places to unwind. Rooms were a treat adorned in traditional style. Semi outdoor toilets and shower were unique and restful and very private.
