My first steps through the gate and walk across the bridge revealed that we were in an extraordinary place; in fact it felt like something of a fairy tale land. It was after climbing Mt Meru that we returned to the lodge and took the most refreshing and reenergizing cold plunge in their natural and completely private water springs. Afterwards we were soothed by the comfort of a deliciously warm soup and also the tranquility of the surrounding environment. Swimming lengths (which I normally find quite boring) in their vastly long pool was wonderful given the sights and sounds of white-bushy-tailed monkeys jumping around the enormous trees. After swim and sun, i relaxed while being given a lovely massage. Truly an incredible experience!
