We would highly recommend this resort. Every attention to detail was made. The grounds were beautiful, the service was superb, the food was marvelous, the owners and staff so genuine and helpful.

The next morning breakfast ( a bit disappointing, and I wished I'd followed the Swiss sisters' lead and bought French style pastries on the way back from the restaurant last night) was at a bleary 6.30am. It was pretty cold and FOGGY on the river, and we laughed at how we'd encouraged the young woman who asked us to check her English homework to change 'fog' to 'mist'. She was right.... it ...
... told us about her adventures. I wondered how a little old English woman ended up in a small hotel kitchen serving coffee to the guests. She explained that she had seen some rough times in the UK concerning her health and that a question she asked her husband one day changed their lives. When Jill overcame her almost fatal illness, she asked her husband, “When you thought I was dead, what were you planning to do with the insurance money?” Her husband replied that ...
... amazing neither of us can believe it! All from the jungle cooked on an open fire! We are stuffed but jay has some sweet potatoes so we dig down in the fire and bury a few. We put a mossy net up and jungle man lays out some padding and blankets. With half a beer left we dig up the soft and creamy sweet potatoes and have a final feast before laying out in the jungle to sleep. We sleep really well with just the noises of the deep jungle to send us to sleep. ...
