The hotel is about 45 minutes from JRO. Check-in was smooth, room was cozy, with comfortable bed and pillows for a good night sleep pre-safari. Hot shower and hair dryer provided. Breakfast was included and delicious.

The position in town is nice and the staff very kind but to be honest several other points didn’t match the expectations: food not good, Spa not up to the standard, rooms very clean but a little cold.
