“We offer our guests exceptional facilities in a stunning natural setting where luxury is inspired by nature. We believe in a family style hospitality and welcome each of our guests as we would at our own homes and may be that is one of the reasons why we are also referred as a Family Hotel among many of our guests,” he added.
