Accommodation comprises 16 units: a mix of stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors, shaded by a thatch roof.
Each unit, designed to blend into the hillside, consists of a bedroom, en-suite bathroom (with outdoor shower) and a veranda for star gazing or sleep-outs.
The main area is perched atop a rocky knoll offering unspoilt panoramic views from the indoor and outdoor dining areas, pool area, bar and a local curio area.
