Fodor's Review

This quiet, sophisticated retreat sits in a forest brimming with birds and wildlife, 122 meters (400 feet) above a beach studded with tide pools. Luxurious two-person cabinas have screened windows, king-size beds, newly upgraded bathrooms with spacious showers behind curving walls, and private deck with forest and ocean views. A deluxe cabin, on the path to the beach, has stunning ocean views and lots of privacy. There's also a large family cabin and a very private, deluxe

two-story cabin that's perfect for honeymoons. Four spacious rooms and two suites have verandas overlooking a new swimming pool edged with teak lounge chairs. International meals with a tropical touch are served on a spacious terrace restaurant. Waterfall rappelling, zip-line access to a canopy platform, and biologist-guided nature walks are the highlights, apart from soaking in the serenity.
