I had a beautiful time with my daughter at Belmond, the architecture, location, the view and the whole trees surrounding the residence is heavenly! The service is amazing and all staff are amicable, buffet breakfast with the display outside is unforgettable ❤️ we also tried the spa and it is one of the best treatments I have done!

We were given the chance to...

We got there and they didn't really know which rooms were for who, but they pretended like they did, so my 89 year old grandmother had to go up and down and up and down and up and down, all the stars the cover the pathways. The director...
