Uniquely natural – Close enough to touch.
A hideaway in the forest only accessible to its privileged guests and located on a scenic plateau, the lodge features breath taking views of the surrounding forested mountains right up close through its floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass windows. Like a cathedral to the natural world, it protrudes from the verdant hillside, holding unknown comforts and pleasures within.
