Each of the rooms is very comfortable, large and really clean. There are 3 different room types of rooms which are all entirely unique in their own particular way.
Bandas– Fashionable designs, smaller as well as a more safe feeling with netting ceilings that keep you near nature as well as breathtaking view of the adjacent river.
Riverside tents-These large tents offer guests a great feeling as well as closeness to Mother Nature. These as well have direct views of the river.
