Guess the Hotel: Remote Paradise


Guess the Hotel-Remote Paradise


This Guess the Hotel: Remote Paradise edition is of a property whose nearby village is home to only about 1500 people, many of them farmers. Yet the hotel, built in 2005, is like entering a remote paradise. On arrival, enjoy a cool towel and welcome drink.

You'll notice the gorgeous flower petal design at the entrance:

And just inside, two lovely burbling fountains decorated with rose petals:

Walk through the airy restaurant to the main pool, and be greeted by birdsong. While well camouflaged against the trees, if you look closely, you can see the many green parrots that call to each other:

In addition to the main pool, there's a smaller pool by the spa. We rarely saw any other guests in or near either pool, so the times we were there, it was as if we were enjoying a large private pool:

That said, the hotel had kindly upgraded us to a stand alone pavilion with a private pool, which my husband and son took full advantage of to have some water fights in:

Inside, the spacious bedroom was immaculate:

The bathroom was even more impressive, with its vaulted dome and green marble his and hers sinks, as well as an elegant soaking tub carved out of an enormous single piece of green marble.

Service and dining were both highlights at the property. I don't want to give it away by picturing the local cuisine (I'll save that for my full review) but even the Western cuisine options were superb. Here's the pizza my son made as part of his cooking class with a couple of the chefs, with fresh basil from the hotel's organic vegetable garden:

And these whole wheat doughnuts with vanilla bean creme anglaise and coffee granita were addictive–we ordered them at every breakfast, along with healthier fare such as fresh fruit, yogurt and granola and international and local breakfast favorites, all also excellent.

Can you guess the hotel and which city it's in?
