It's been almost a year, but I can still remember how wonderful my experience was over all. Upon a generous agreement with the owners I got to have both my small informal wedding and honeymoon at this retreat. All of my guests proclaimed they've never seen anything like this place and how it really enhanced the special day. A short honeymoon with my husband here was just amazing. So relaxing, with all that solitude we were able to really enjoy ourselves as newlyweds.
Pros: 360 degree spectacular views, that only get better when you can see all the stars and moon out (no light/city pollution here). The lagoon makes for a beautiful backdrop, although it was too cold for us to use. Lovely heated hot tub, huge shower. Angles of the house provide excellent sunlight. Very quiet, great for anyone who needs that solitude. The hammock, perfect for lounging, staring up at the stars.
Cons: We found both beds and the couch to be firm and a bit uncomfortable, and I did find it hard to get restful sleep. But I made up for that by taking catnaps in the hammock. The shower knobs stopped working 3 days into our trip, but one of the owners came within an hour to fix it. The hot tub stopped working on our last day, don't know if it was out of propane, but we had plenty of use out of it so that didn't bother too much. The road is quite narrow and a bit scary at night. Some of the structure of the place is old and slightly run down, but honestly this isn't a 5 star hotel, and if you're truly enjoying the retreat in all its glory, there's no reason why that kind of detail should really be a problem.
Looking back at my wedding photos, with my anniversary just days from now, I am overall very pleased with our experience. The only reason I might not return is due to the beds just being too firm for me to feel rested. Other than that, I would love to come back here some day, perhaps in the summer so we could swim in the lagoon.
