    ‘Dreamlike!’ Original review (automatically translated)

    The resort is built with great attention to detail, the food is always delicious, the staff is above average friendly and accommodating and the yoga classes were just right for me. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Clean room with lots of space and an unbeatable view, sometimes with visitors that don't do anything to you (geko, cockroaches, spiders), super water pressure, hot water if you need it, ceiling fan and air conditioning. Perfect location right on the lake. Lots of steps to get from the lake to the room and restaurant, which keeps you fit.
    • Service and hospitality
      The owners and ALL the staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. They try to fulfill all your wishes and help where they can.
    • Cuisine
      The Ayurvedic menu is absolutely delicious.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The spa area is very nice. The massages and treatments were super good.

    ‘A wonderful place with very great staff, dreamlike’ Original review (automatically translated)

    The resort is located directly on the Begnas Lake between two forests. The lake is very quiet, there is only paddling. Birds and wildlife are everywhere. The staff is absolutely great, all staff are always friendly and helpful. All requests are met and suggestions are made proactively e.b for excursions. There was a young Ayurvedic doctor on site with whom you coordinate the program daily. He was very committed and has for each guest on request the Nenüplan compiled and coordinated with the restaurant. In the kitchen works an extremely visionary chef from Nepal, who has worked and learned all over the world and now wants to share his knowledge at home. He also teaches at the university. The owner couple is on site and are strongly involved in the operation. I was thrilled. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel / bungalows is already over 20 years old, but well maintained and operated. Who does not like to climb stairs, should not come here. Due to the hillside location, there are many meetings to climb both to the road (55 meters in altitude) and within the resort. There is wifi and air conditioning, sometimes the power fails in the region
    • Service and hospitality
      Super dedicated and friendly / cheerful staff, some of whom are local. Ayurveda area and hotel area are well coordinated. If you want to make an excursion, the schedule is changed in no time.
    • Cuisine
      I ate Ayurvedic food, of course. The very creative chef always conjures up great new recipes.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      There may be more choices at other resorts. What is here is in good shape and clean. The owners are very concerned about sustainability, so the pool is without chemicals, but is completely re-installed more often.
    • Treatments and programmes
      I received competent care and felt very comfortable. All my expectations that I had were exceeded.
