The resort consists of 52 cottages set in eight acres of respectfully tamed forest. The architecture is inspired by the jungle dwellings of the area and care has been taken to use the same materials in construction. A number of creature comforts have been added, however, to make your stay a luxurious one.

The resort has more than 50 species of trees including herbal trees, all of which are named in English and Latin and a botanist is at hand to explain the many marvels of the jungle.
