A Must Experience!

Toronto, Canada

This is one of the best hotel/resort experience I've ever had! The staff from the front office to the restaurant are were amazing. So friendly and personable they really go out of their way to please. My suite was beautiful, spacious, clean and all was in working order. The best offered an incredible night sleep it was so comfy! The best part was the view and the private pool. It was so relaxing and tranquil. I loved seeing the wildlife up close from my suite. The activities were well organized and very engaging. Food is top notch. Excellent quality, fresh and delicious both in-room dining and restaurant. This is a must experience for anyone who comes to this part of the world. Loved it!

Amazing

New York City, New York

Let's get the obvious out of the way first: It is not cheap. That is were the bad things end. The "tents" and are amazing. The staff are super-friendly, the service top notch. The chance to see wildlife without getting up from your sun lounger by the private pool is wow. The food is amazing. Oh and did I mention the staff and the service? On the price: It includes breakfast, lunch & dinner. And that in turn includes things like steak and lobster. That doesn't make this a cheap place to stay, but it sort of makes it a little more reasonable. Loved it, hope to be back.
