beautiful setting. The rose garden is outstanding. One negative comment: for all of its luxury they have the cheapest toilet paper that one might find in a motel six.

What a wonderful find! Fist time here and certainly not the last. I've been to many premium hotels in my life and (trying to keep recency bias out of this) it might just be the best hotel/lodge I've ever been to. From the arrival and attentive staff to the setting, views, impeccable rooms, wonderful dining, spa and amenities, we just adored every part of our stay here. M. Bernardus would be proud. Keep up the fantastic work!

The staff was so courteous and attentive. The grounds are gorgeous and a had a deck with a lovely lookout onto the trees and hills. I love the Infinity Jacuzzi with the view. And the food at the Lucia Restaurant is wonderful.
