We stayed for 3 nights towards the end of May, in deluxe suite. The property is very well maintained. The location is not all that great, in that there are no nice valley views, no mist wafting up to the resort etc. But it's away from the city noise, so it's quiet and nice.
The buffet spread is pretty good, with lots of variety. Quality on exotic foods varied a bit, but was good on the whole. Staff, specially the restaurant staff, was extremely helpful and very nice.
One of the 3 nights they organised a good evening of games around the bonfire. The other nights not many people turned up, even though the resort had lots of people - I think the problem is they don't advertise the evening events properly, so a lot of people don't even find out.
The suite was ok, though the rooms were a bit small. TV had all Eng movie channels, no Hindi movies, no English entertainment, and some Hindi entertainment.
Entertainment: TT, carrom, some other board games, indoor playing area for toddlers, a small library, and some paid games like foozball etc. Swings for older kids outdoors. Overall, nice.
The size of the resort isn't very big. Having stayed at resorts in Munnar, Idukki, Coorg etc, it seemed too small. If you like to walk around, there isn't a lot of space in the resort, and nothing outside the resort.
1. They play music throughout the property most of the day. Sometimes, it's loud. In a place like this, specially mornings and evenings, one would prefer to hear the sounds of nature. Even on request, they didn't turn it off. I think one other reviewer has had the same problem. W
2. Entertainment options need to be better. They have a badminton court, but one has to buy the rackets from them - that's stupid - they should give them for free or rent them out. They have a Playstation, but it was 'getting repaired'.
3. They charged for toothpaste, which seemed petty for a resort priced this high - hopefully someone in the management of the resort is reading this.
