My palmstone retreat review is finally up and I received a lot of inquirers specifically about the waterfall. This hotel review was a paid collaboration with palmstone retreat. Getting to the hotel was quite tricky as the roads are super rocky and narrow. I have to mention that before any of you curse me on your way up to the hotel. I highly recommend that you travel during the day time as it might be quite difficult in the night because it’s pretty much in the middle of a jungle. They also offer other activities like white water rafting, rock sliding, bird watching, hiking, and so many more fun activities! I’ll add their website below so you guys can check out everything Palmstone has to offer their guests.
As we arrived we were taken to the Araliya suite which has its own sauna and jacuzzi. I highly recommend you to stay in this villa if you’re heading to palmstone for two nights as you have your own privacy. My favorite part was that there was a waterfall right outside our room which Nayan and I walked to and spent our Sunday morning hopping from rock to rock. The main waterfall that you all inquired about is quite far from the hotel. It’s about a 25-30 minute trek uphill which is a little tiring but totally worth it! I think heading to the waterfall early morning is the best time for a trek as Nayan and I went early afternoon and it was just a little too warm. there is a guide assigned from the hotel who takes you whenever you prefer to visit and he is super friendly!
The rooms are facilitated with everything from a blowdryer to an ironing board, different types of teas and other basic room amenities. The bed is super comfortable which you guys would have seen on my stories. The room in which we stayed was very spacious with a seating area as well. Another one of my favorite parts was that they had a selection of movies and tv series which you order. I hurt my foot on the first day so Nayan and I decided to have dinner in the room and we ordered ourselves a DVD as well.
A few of you asked me if I had signals on my phone and I didn’t have any signals pretty much the whole time I was there. However, they do have wifi in every room and the restaurant as well. I think it’s also good to get away and have a relaxing weekend. It works both ways but Nayan and I kept picturing ourselves in a horror movie running through the jungle and not having any signals to call anyone for help. The food was also pleasantly surprised as it was better than I expected it to be. I wouldn’t say it’s the best nasi or best soup I’ve had but it was quite good. I also have to mention that the staff is super friendly and welcoming which makes you feel at home. The hotel was fully booked the weekend we visited and we got to know a few foreigners who had specifically come to palmstone retreat to visit the waterfall.
If I had to rate my stay at Palmstone retreat it would be a 7/10 which is pretty good. It was fun to do something different with Nayan as opposed to our usual hotel visits. This time we were able to be a little adventurous with trekking and sitting at the edge of waterfalls together. I hope you guys enjoyed another one of our videos.
