We booked the zen villa for three nights but ended up only staying for one....my wife didn't enjoy the geckos and ants very much :) the Villa was beautiful and clean and the staff was very helpful. They provide you with breakfast foods to cook in the morning and free use of the amazing plunge pools, steam baths and scrubs with pleanty of really tasty virgin mojitos. The Villas are close to a road so you still get some street noise but it's not that much. The sounds of the jungle are louder. There was even a large Gecko in our closet that my wife didn't seem to like :) so the staff quickly got rid of it. The cafe has really good food but it is not a full meal so if you are going to stay in a villa bring food or plan on going to town for dinner.
The only thing I would have liked to see (maybe I missed it) would have been a broom so I could have sweept the kitchen and bathroom from ants. The kitchen could use a little extra attention on the cleaning to keep the ants out too.
Expect to see plenty of centipedes, ants, mosquitos and geckos.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tamarind Springs’ villas are open and airy buildings, individually designed and appointed to blend into the lush tropical garden setting. Your bedroom might be built against the face of an enormous granite boulder...or overlooking a pond, a giant ficus tree might grow in your open-air bathroom. You will delight in the expansive private gardens surrounding each villa - ensuring their occupants absolute privacy - and in the integration of interior and exterior, which makes staying in one of our Villas a memorable experience. ... more less
