    Best Service and Location”

    Beautiful resort. Loved the location. Secluded from the touristy area amidst jungle and plantation. This is my second time visiting here and I loved it even more this time because of the great service. Sukanto was very kind and helpful and made our stay a very memorable one. 10/10 would visit again.

    Jungle experience ”

    The houses are really good and gives you a different experience. The best part was the open bathroom they had. The breakfast was delicious too
