Lodge needs some upgrading. Water conditions horrific, sickening

Classified as luxury, yet it's the worst hotel that I have done! Bungalow dirty, moldy, that smells urine of the bat, full of insects. Little accommodating staff, a filthy pool, total absence of management. This hotel has great potential

The chalets are private, and all overlook the river. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpfull. The restaurant, also overlooking the river, was a wonderful experience and the variety on the menu is amazing.
