You hear the rustle of the leaves as the cool evening breeze plays with them-Muse enough for a poet…Float, if you choose, on a bamboo raft in the encircling placid waters of the pool from where you can watch the residual brilliance illuminating the evening sky after sunset. It creates a relaxed ambience that helps you to unwind.
