Accommodation

We are staying in a beautiful spa hotel nested just by the side of the mountain and surrounded by stunning pristine nature. The ellipse shaped hotel features huge windows along one of the walls which allows you to enjoy magnificent views during the day and fall asleep looking out at the stars. There is also a bathtub with a view available in the room, lots of lovely details and outstanding wooden decor. If you prefer simplicity, there is a more basic choice of room available which is a little smaller and has a regular bathroom. These rooms are in the older building of the hotel. Both types of rooms are available for double/twin or single occupancy.
