This is exactly the holiday I have been looking for for many years. Relaxing, rejuvenating, best staff ever, I felt they are my own friends of family. Beautiful landscape, super tent cottages, delicious food and services. Though very calm and serene there are a lot to do. Twice yoga classes a day, great and diverse massages, strolling in the beautiful landscape. The sunrise with an orchestra of birds are absolutely wonderful experience. .... I spent one week but i will stay more next time..as I AM DEFINITELY GOING BACK SOON.
