My brother, a resident here, booked us to visit L'Exil for a weekend. I had no idea what to expect. The site is isolated and about 7km from the road down very rough tracks through the sugar cane fields.We checked in late on Fiday night (we had a delay), got fed very well and shown to our rooms. I thought there was a noisy airconditioning unit running.
When the sun rose in the morning it revealed the most fabulous view I have ever experienced ~ an utterly unspoilt mountainside and a breathtaking waterfall (the air-con noise!). It got better. Beautiful gardens, attentive service, excellent food. The guide took us swimming in the waterfall. Plenty of wildlife. Tangs, fruit bats, frogs and giant snails were everywhere.
If you are reading this either you've been (and you are checking to see if this confirms it) or your considering it. If the latter; do it!
It is out of the way, utterly beautiful and truly a real relaxation. No TV's. No noise (apart from the waterfall!). A real break. Enjoy it!
It cost 25,000 rupees (£500?) for 4 adults & 2 children for two nights (we had two breakfasts, two dinners, one lunch, all our drinks, the guide and including the rooms) which we though good value.More
