Waterfalls are not only beautifully appealing to the eye, but they are also relaxing, romantic, and create a unique atmosphere. As one of the only boutique hotels to have its own exquisite, naturally occurring, high cliffed waterfall, residents may choose to sit or dine in its serenity. This is an oddity amidst the city’s normal hustle and bustle, and many visitors in the city passing by stop just to take in its majestic aura.
