Yes. Awesome. WE WILL BE BACK! Staff were magnificent.
This is truly an oasis in the desert of humanity!
To make it even more awesome, I would service some of the wonderful bush-walks with more safety features and provide a resort walking guide map that was numbered according to the field guide they provide, so that you knew where you are on the trail. Could be helpful in an emergency.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The highlight was swimming in the river and going for a walk in the rainforest. However, the room is not worth the money we paid.
