Outstanding as always... my second visit in last two years. Whilst some aspects of the property are a little dated and under renovation, but what separates this place is the people and the service. Never a dull moment at this lovely resort. The greatest achievement of this place is their attention to detail. Once the staff says something, it's done....

Lushly-landscaped gardens and forest lead up to the reception building. No detail is to small for the staff attention. As you exit the air conditioned cab and your glasses steam up, they offer you a cool...
