Fabulous quiet weekend destination

It's one of the older resorts, located at one of the best vantage points to get a picturesque view of the surrounding hills and valleys. Had been there to their poolside restaurant few times before and lived it. So decided to try a weekend stay there. I'd expected an old style sort of experience. But was pleasantly surprised by large, rooms will modern design, decor and fittings. Both the restaurants and the bar serve fabulous food and drinks with a large variety. It's unusual to have a resort get all cuisines right. Also surprisingly the buffet breakfast was excellent with unusual items on it. Well trained, attentive staff. The grounds could have been larger. But there is enough greenery to go rambling around in the hills. If anything could be better, it's just how the sports section is maintained. Most of the racquets were damaged and had broken shuttlecocks.
