“This place was very satisfying. I was there for 2 nights... The owner, JAANI took real great care of everything. The rooms were very clean, the bathrooms were also very clean. The place is beautiful,peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are well insulated with proper netting to avoid any bugs or insects to get in. Also, I had to go somewhere in the early hours of the morning before Sunrise, and it's difficult to get a tuk tuk, and Jaani personally offered to drop me in his car. I will really appreciate that. Wonderful help from caretakers Gaala and Morris. Very Hospitable.”
