Enjoyable stay in a neat and tidy room. The staff are friendly and helpful. Attending to your every need. The home cooked meals smells divine and next time I will make sure that I book a meal. The garden is so beautiful and the bonsai trees are a very attractive feature.
The pool gets sun all day long and the water 💦 is beautiful to cool 😎 off on a hot day

I didn't sign up for the Aark!
The theme is attractive and well developed. Management needs to remember that customers are paying to stay at the hotel. A less strict approach will serve them well.
