This property is unlike most others and thats a good thing. The feeling is more zen and minimalist which we liked. Beautiful setting overlooking the falls. Just one walking path down to the falls then through their beautiful bamboo gardens. There is a relaxing pagoda next to the river to sit in quiet and look at the falls. We joined others for dinner with the private chef and that was absolutely delicious.

One of a kind experience
The hotel setting and scenery is gorgeous with private waterfall and a farm. The dining experience at the hotel with Chef Daysen Masuda was a real treat. Call the hotel in advance and find out what they offer and the cost to be prepared.

This place is magical and the view breathtaking. The walk down to the waterfall and rover was fairly easy and we would definitely come back again!

The Inn's location is beautiful, set close to a stunning waterfall, but it does require a nearly 10 minute drive down a narrow private road. Arrive in daylight as the drive can be a bit adventurous after dark. The Inn staff are top notch; very friendly, accommodating and informative about the area. The rooms and furnishings are adequate but in need of some refurbishments. Excellent breakfast overlooking the falls.
