It is one of the ideal places to sit back and enjoy a cocktail, delicious food or a stimulating conversation. Your cuisine will be prepared by highly skilled chefs who take care of any dietary need you may have. After a long day filled with adventure and discovery, you can unwind under the attention of the experienced masseuse in the lodge’s premium spa.
