Tensing or Catcha

We are two couples with two options. Star at Catcha Falling Star or Red Birch or Long House at Tensing Pen. Is Tensing Pen worth twice as much as Catcha? We want to get our money's worth. We need to book these rooms tomorrow!

We stayed at Catcha in 2010 and Tensing Pen in 2011. We like the staff better at Catcha but TP has more privacy throughout the resort. You can't beat the bar or food at Catcha. Even though we stayed at TP last year, we still walked over for dinner, several times at Catcha. It is a hard choice but I'm sure you will be happy at either one.

Thanks, we will probably stay at Catcha - just concerned about outdated condition and lack of a/c in the Star Cottage. We are spending the first half of the vacation at Country Country and thought an upgrade at TP might be nice. However, it may not be worth the extra $$ if it is a toss-up!

larsfamily,

You won't need A/C except in the summer. The Star provides a lot of privacy because it is set back from the common areas and Ivan's. Go with Catcha. The staff are what make it a special place. You won't be disappointed.

We recently stayed at Catcha, however, we swam over to Tensing a couple times to check it out for possible future stay. Personally, we love Catcha and everything they have to offer and would not hesitate to stay again.

Now we are debating Sundancer at The Caves - negotiating a pretty good deal with the manager. Any thoughts?

We've booked at The Caves, but will be sure to hit Ivan's once or twice!
