“These people and this place are amazing! From top to bottom an exceptional time. The service setting it up was impeccable and easy, the setting is idyllic and the staff are glorious kind folks to whom I wish nothing but the best success and to whom I extend my heartfelt thanks. I would recommend this to anyone and am already about to book for next year. Ten stars!”

“What an absolutely amazing experience! My son and I stayed in a dome on the upper level. Everything about our stay here was perfect- the staff were friendly and helpful, the views were spectacular, the dome was clean and such a unique place to sleep. We would have stayed longer were they not fully booked the next night! We will definitely be going back. Highly recommend!”

“What a fun experience “glamping”! I definitely recommend trying it out. We stayed in one of the beach domes by the river. Breathtaking views, super friendly staff, ample activities, clean and family-friendly. We opted to float down the river, and had the pleasure of meeting Steve. It rained for about an hour in the evening and we still enjoyed taking in the views from inside the dome. We will be back, thanks URA!”
