An upmarket boutique hotel, set on a working, organic coffee plantation offers guests the chance to stay in the lap of luxury while taking in the local surroundings. Throughout the hotel there are many paintings and artefacts commissioned by the owner and each suite has an individual feel to it, each one striking and unique in its own right. There is a main lounge, bar and restaurant and of course a spa for pampering treatments.
