Each room has a balcony which looks out onto picturesque views of the landscapes and are tastefully decorated with modern and traditional elements. The suites are both rustic and elegant, with kitchenettes and living rooms, whilst the chic tents offer a safari feel like no other, coupled with private bathrooms and air conditioning.

Food & Drink
