Home sweet Om
You will be spending 10 days cocooned an enchanting private retreat oasis surrounded by coconut palms and rice paddies where you will wake up to the sounds of crickets, animal friends and nature that surrounds the home.
This retreat home is all about the connection to nature and we want you to be close to the natural abundant vegetation that thrives in this paradise. It also has an amazing infinity pool overlooking the jungle where you can take a dip or bask in the sun at your own desire.
