    "Meeting Prem has been such a joy. She treats all her guests so equally and fairly, and is most considerate of all their needs. She has provided good facilities for all types of accommodation there, and good communications also. She has a quiet, wise presence at Maravilhas, which is most welcomed by us. "

  • Review by Lucy from Europe

    "I am so pleased to have stumbled across your website in my quest to find the perfect place to escape my busy life. It is so easy to forget about the things that really matter as you work every day and fill your time. Coming here has made me stop, rest and given me much needed time to think. Being so close to nature has been amazingly therapeutic for me. I have enjoyed the few bursts of sunlight we've had, the rain which has encouraged us to sit by the fire and the beautifully bright stars and the noises of nature here. Thank you for providing this lovely space that has done such a good job in grounding me and reminding me what life is all about."
