Imagine a little ‘palace’ all to yourself. King sized beds, the softest linen, the fluffiest pillows, comfiest sofas, cool wooden floors; and space to breathe, space to stretch, to allow yourself to indulge in all the luxury within it.

We call them ‘chalets’ – and you have 20 to choose from, but each is a sanctuary to hide yourself away from the cares of the world and be treated like royalty. Each one is a special place to take refuge in, be surrounded by beauty and feel at one with creation itself. And, which view would you like to admire: A lush green paddy field, an enchanted forest, or the still expanse of a lake? Whichever you choose, you have a wide terrace and picture windows to feast your eyes from.
