An amazing place to spend a couple of nights of our Honeymoon! The Deluxe 2 Bedroom Spa Treehut was incredible with amazing views in to the trees.

I stayed in the delux tree hut. It was fairly private with all the vegetation around and quiet as away from the hotel rooms. View from the bed was amazing of the mountains, loved the nice big shower. Lots of eating places in walking distance.
