The tranquil and relaxed setting here is replete with hand-crafted candles that create the perfect feel good atmosphere. Then there are scented incense and essential oils along with teak furniture that lends the place a touch of old-world class. If the perfumed air doesn’t inspire you, the sweeping views of the adjoining ocean and jungles offered from their terrace sure will.
