The huge outdoor swimming pool
The food at the restaurant is reasonably priced and there are quite a lot of options. Whether you are on foot or on a wheelchair, you can get to where you want to be as there are ramps going to the swimming pool, the casitas and the resort’s other amenities. The staff was courteous and helpful. However, internet is only available at the hotel lobby. 
Koi pond

Function hall
This is a good place to unwind as it is close to nature, with massive trees of all sorts. It's also a great place for youth camps, religious activities and teambuilding. 

The resort is also open for those who want to try camping around the rolling terrain or forest trails. Its location, far from the main road, makes it more private and somehow secluded. However, the winding access road leading to the resort was bumpy. There was ample and secure parking space.
