12 thatched bungalows adorn the valley’s rim, each carefully positioned to offer the best vistas over the canyons from the veranda. Simple yet tasteful interiors decorate the inside, while an en-suite bathroom is installed in each.

Food and Facilities

Enjoy a la carte dining on the restaurant terrace, where you’ll also find a lounge and bar - complete with a rustic fireplace to warm you on the chillier evenings. Be sure to take a dip in the picturesque swimming pool that perches on the edge of the cliff face, where you can bathe atop miles of untouched scenery below.
