          I really enjoyed this hotel, the view of the mountains was beautiful and the reception desk was really friendly and helpful. It is located on the main road and close to the hot pools and some amazing restaurants.

Falling at 120mph, initially above thick clouds, then through the clouds and finally on the other side of the clouds where we could see the earth below us!!! I couldn't even hear ...
