Cabins room service     

Dear Guest! We care about the environment, so we don't clean the cabin every day, just clean and restock as needed. If you are missing anything, please let us know at breakfast or at reception. We are in the wild, so the supply of hot water is not endless – we recommend no longer than 10 minutes shower.  Hang towels on the hook if it is not necessary to wash, lay on the floor otherwise.
