After having spent years staying at Seven Mile Beach,I decided to get away from the hustle and growing tourist attraction of Seven Mile.In 1972 it was quite special.When staying on Seven Mile,I regularly went to the cliffs ,where one could "chance" a jump off the cliff's.The walk was charming,not even like tourists ever discovered this piece of paradise.I vowed to return someday with my wife and experience the cliffs.Tensing Pen was my choice,as I was now looking for peace and serenity.
Tensing Pen is very special.Everyone respects your privacy,it is well ammenitied,hospitable,well-guarded on the perimeters and gated,no worries!
We talked with the owner ,who had built many of the quaint cottages,his favorite being The Garden Studio.There really isn't a bad room at this village.
I will leave you with this picture of Paradise.......Every morning at 6:am,I walked thru lighted garden paths,talked with Owen,the night guard on our side,walked across the "open"bridge"to the restaurant,where Bruce,the night supervisor was making fresh Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee(absolutely the finest coffee in the world)
After having a pot brewed" special" for my wife,I meandered back,watching the sunrise,delivering my wife her delicious brew and enjoying Tensing Pen,both at night and day.It was truly paradise.The staff was friendly and helpful,the rooms were meticulous,interestinlg arrainged,so everone could privately enjoy this very very special place.I can say no more than this is what I felt every morning.No suprises.In fact,like most visitors,we,decided a week was not enough,so we bargained for an extra two days.We would have stayed forever,thats a fact!
