We enjoyed the crystal clear air, softest water, hot springs in deep green forest with no other sounds but birds and insects singing. Tranquillity was the foremost gift there.

Variety of caves were very interesting. Steam bath was fascinating. The temperature of hot spring bath in our villa was just right and we liked that the water disposed and refilled each day.

Stayed here for 2 nights this week on our first visit. The retreat is breathtaking in its natural majesty as it's set against the backdrop of a beautiful limestone hill and everything in the resort is built around the natural environment. The geothermal hot dipping pots are wonderful as you soak in the hotspring water while looking up at the limestone hill. Likewise, the steam room and ice dipping pots are set within the cave of the limestone hill itself, as is the magnificent Jeff's Cellar dining room. The balcony of my villa looked straight out to the massive limestone hill, and all around, nature's beauty and splendour is present in every part of the resort. Privacy is assured as there are only 25 villas in this vast resort, so at times it's like having your own private resort. This will change though as work is already beginning on additional villas. This resort is truly spectacular.
