I stayed in the wooden cabin, which was a highlight of my trip. The cabin was beautifully designed, offering a blend of rustic charm and modern comfort. The bed was incredibly comfortable, ensuring a restful night’s sleep. The bathroom, located outside, added a touch of exotic luxury. My cabin also had a private patio, a fridge, and a well-functioning air conditioner. The Wi-Fi was fast and reliable, perfect for staying connected or sharing your adventures online. Every evening, I could choose my breakfast options for the next morning, and the staff made sure everything was perfect.

The accommodation was impeccable, with daily cleaning ensuring everything remained spotless. The attention to detail in maintaining the rooms and the friendly, attentive staff made for a truly comfortable stay. The availability to opt in on the food options that were cooked for everyone at night, allowed me to enjoy delicious meals without any hassle.
