Your Villa is one of just fifteen hidden in the rainforest.
The view of the sunlight dancing across the water from your balcony is almost hypnotic.
The food is simply exquisite, a standard our guests demand. And so there is a team of chefs and a new menu every day.

An open terrace restaurant overlooks the cascading pool in an intimate setting for a la carte breakfast, lunch and dinner, all of which are included in your tariff.
The menu is varied and changes daily. Breakfast is available from 8.00am, lunch from 1.00pm and dinner from 7.00pm.
