Lonely Planet review
A cluster of garden bungalows and deluxe rooms makes up this wonderfully reclusive boutique hotel. Richard, the new US owner, has completely remodeled and transformed the property. The contemporary rooms have wonderful touches such as bamboo ceiling and bathroom with slate walls, plus cable TV, fridge, minibar, hair dryer and safe. Deluxe rooms are larger and sleep up to four. The gorgeous pool and patio garden is home to one of the best restaurants in town, Seasons by Shlomy.
