Such a special place! Absolutely beautiful property, delicious vegan food, and the best service I encountered in my entire time in Colombia. Special thanks to Osval who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable! This place is an adventure - you are completely immersed in nature (which may mean you see the occasional tarantula, but it’s ok because the superb staff will help if you get scared like I did). I already miss the symphony of the jungle at night and hope to return to yay soon.

Special care for the enviroment with a subtle touch of architectural details with a lot of taste. Walking into the hotel is liking walking into paradise. It's absolutely beautiful and from the moment you arrive, the service is incredible. Every aspect is TOP. The food is not to be missed. Every member of the staff is attentive to your every need. The rooms are great (no TV so really allows you to disconnect into the peaceful feel of the jungle). We cannot wait to return!.
