For a splurge and a great get-away, this is THE place!
It takes a bit of navigating to finally arrive, but I was so happy here I spent an extra day.
After showing me a standard room (quite beautiful), the manager didn't have to do much persuading to get me to take a suite! A huge bed, sitting area, modern bathroom and a Jacuzzi!!
Best of all was the enormous window with a view of the active volcano. Smoke and ash by day. Fire by night.
The meals are also excellent and the grounds are spacious and inviting. Perfect for family groups.
if you have the time, don't hesitate to visit this retreat!
