This eco lodge hotel is run by Mai Bateman and her husband Roy. Roy is an entomologist who loves sharing his knowledge of the jungle. The food is plentiful and tasty, cooked by a couple of local chefs who seem to get a fabulous balance between local ethnic food with a touch of western cuisine thrown in. Really delicious, especially the local bananas that are small and sweet.
