Many travellers are seeking more these days. They want to know that they are contributing to fair and just practices in every aspect of the travel experience; from the food served, to the furnishings utilized, and to the larger social context of the place they are visiting. However, at the end of the day, they also expect a good night’s rest in a quality bed. All suites feature custom- made, organic, natural fibre king beds made by Obasan. Time and again, guests have been happy to share their thoughts about the outstanding quality of the beds. A was difficult to leave the comfort of their room.
It’s been an incredible journey thus far. 2014 was a big year for us with notable awards, events and many returning visitors. 2015 promises to be even better. We look forward to a continued relationship with Obasan.
