Great little hotel, albeit a bit on the expensive side. We went in winter so there was no plague of insects as other reviewers have mentioned having trouble with. We were met at the train station, escorted to the hotel and stayed in the lake view suite. No issues with hotel staff who were excellent although knowing a bit of Mandarin will be helpful when dealing with the Chinese staff over the phone.
The suite was lovely though the kitchen appliances were a bit on the cheap side and for the suite price I would expect premium western channels in addition to local CCTV. Otherwise the accommodation was bright, airy, quiet and comfortable.
The main draw is your personal hot spring and cold lap pool. This is where we spent the majority of our time and if you're looking for a place to unwind then this is it. In the morning mist off the lake surrounded the hotel and in the evening there was little light pollution so the stars were readily visible, both of which added to the ambiance.
Food options are limited in the hotel restaurant so plan ahead or deal with a limited range of choices. I would strongly suggest bringing your own wine or other drinks as there is nowhere within walking distance and the restaurant prices are quite high given the quality of the wine offered. Also the spa gets booked up quickly so it's best to book ahead. We booked the day of our arrival for a spa treatment but had some difficulty doing so. In the end it worked out - which is a testament to the staff - but I'd like to see them bring on another staff member in the spa for weekends.
Overall Kayumanis is a lovely property with a fantastic hot spring. Perfect place to getaway for a couple days. Just a few issues with in-suite amenities, spa availability and restaurant options that should not be an issue given the price. In spite of these minor inconveniences highly recommended.
