The location is awesome, it is located right in the middle of the lagoon and you can only get to this hotel by the use of a boat. If you are looking to be in sync with nature which includes vegetation and birds, this is the place for you. I enjoyed it because of the tranquility and the time it allowed me to meditate. There are seafood menu is great, saw crocodile meat but wasn’t able to eat it, ate lobster here and I can say it was one of the best made lobsters I have eaten. You will be staying in cabins located in this swamp and this is the best choice for nature lovers. I got to take lots of pictures of birds and the surrounding, I was able to sleep here undisturbed and that is what a vacation should be all about especially if you have a busy schedule at work like me. This place is not so cheap but it is worth it and I got to see a croc farm during my stay in this wonderful vacation place. The food here is great but you should know that because of the location, you will encounter mosquitoes. I love the adventurous feel it had because I feel like getting to this location itself is an adventure. The rooms are usually wooden and you will also be taken to your room by boat, it was such an amazing experience for me. I enjoyed my stay here and I will be back.
