Counting the days down to our return trip to this magical place. We spent the entire first day of our trip staring out from the terrace of our room unable to believe how stunning the view was. The entire resort from the moments the gates open to let you in, just encompasses pure perfection and bliss. The refreshing fresh fruit...

Dear Juliette B. Thank you for this great review of Tensing Pen. We are so glad you chose to stay with us. The Long House is such a lovely choice for 2 or 3 couples, and it seems you had a good time, since you jumped off the bridge :) We look forward to welcoming you again to Tensing Pen,...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights to celebrate graduating college. What an amazing place. The views are amazing, the staff is friendly, the food is excellent. We stayed in the Patio, which was awesome because it felt so private. We could sit on our front porch and have a drink or a cigar and nobody could see...

Just the most relaxing and beautiful place! The grounds and rooms of the resort are amazing, the staff is attentive, and the food was delicious. We loved having the room open to the ocean, and would get one of the pillars to ensure a good view. We did use the air conditioning at night, as mid-May was a little warm....

My husband and I have been going here annually for 12 years. The staff make you feel like family and are accommodating to your every need. No place more beautiful or relaxing. We have even taken our 18 year-old son on a trip as a graduation gift. Two years later took my 23 year-old sister and 8 year-old son. They...

We stayed for 4 nights in the South Pillar. The whole property is amazing with a dramatic location right on the cliffs. What makes it great is all the little patios where you can lounge in the sun and the various entries into the beautiful water. From South pillar you have a great view of the sea. It has an...

This was the most relaxing Resort we have ever stayed in. They somehow know how to treat you and provide you with your every need without being invasive or bothersome. It is truly a unique experience that allows a couple to completely disconnect and focus on one another once again.
