A completely successful hotel concept. The extensive grounds offer everything your heart desires. Beautiful pool area esp. The infinity pools and the hotel's own maze is a special feature.

The complex - 80ha was with a lot of love to detail laid out. Great garden and green areas - but hilly. The spa area and pool areas were great - the fitness center very good. We did not book applications and therefore can not judge them.
