8/10 Very good

Stunning surroundings. Chalets adequate but need updating. Food adequate but uninspiring. Staff were helpful & polite.

10/10 Exceptional

Qwantani is a beautiful oasis in the mountains with a variety of activities to help you explore and connect with the land. The accommodations are simple but comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. A lovely pool to cool off in. The location is stunning, with a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains and dam. The only catch is you have to drive about 30-40 minutes on a dirt road with potholes to get there! But completely worth the drive!!
