The morning breakfast was okay and not that great. I've been travelling all over India since June 2014 and one thing that I would like to point out is...

Wonderful room service and the villa was spacious and clean for a stay. Food was good and the service we got was awesome. Good places for couples. Only issue was the road to resort was very narrow. Price is very affordable very understanding management.

I have been to this place on 15th August. The place is beautiful, it feels that we are staying mid of the forest. The cottages give impression that those were constructed for the purpose of residential colony and later on converted to the resort. The management has to look into the maintainance part of the property very seriously... We occupied...

However, it is quite far from the town with almost no public transport. Own vehicle is a must. The rooms are great. The standard rooms have a hall, bedroom...
