This is a fabulous place set in the forest. Syke and colobus monkeys are everywhere and the grounds are landscaped with all types of trees and vegetation.
The villas are set apart from each other so you feel you have a place of your own. Each villa is different in style and two have their own pools.
Food at the restaurant was very good and fresh and new everyday. This is a great place for privacy, relaxation and quiet. The beach is a ten minute walk or there is a shuttle taxi to take you there. I would stay here again and avoid the other tourist traps on the beach.
