One of the nicest resorts we ever stayed at. The grounds are very well landscaped, the scenery is beautiful and the food is phenomenal! We rented a car and drove there (must have 4 wheel drive) and managed to find the resort very easily. The road the resort is on is horrible as everyone has said but do not let that stop you. We felt very safe driving there. There were signs up at every junction letting us know where to go. Once we arrived the staff waited on us hand and foot. They took our bags to our hut, had a drink waiting on our arrival, and gave us a brief tour. There is only one restaurant but there were lots of choices and the food was so delicious we had a hard time choosing what to eat! The chef even emailed me one of their recipes! The waterfall is beautiful, very relaxing. Make sure you hike to big rock falls, it's a mile up the road. A trolley will take you down until 5pm then you must walk the 300 steps to get back up! Overall I don't know how we will top this resort, it was that amazing! And last but not least, Derby makes the most amazing drinks we ever had!
