The entire property is on an island of 3+ acre land @ Vemabanadu Lake and this adds to the charm of this place. The entrance will not give you the vibe of its real beauty. To take you to the exact location, they will provide you a boat. The boat ride will give you the feeling of sailing through Amazon... More

It starts from the front desk. They start making excuses for their goof ups. Then they say the amenities mentioned are not present. The voltage fluctuates during daytime and thus the AC in your room will be non functional most part of the day. The restaurant is just a rip off. The price are very high and quality is not... More

Despite the scenic beauty this resort is less functional now. It has dark rooms and electronics dont work properly. The food was quite good. It does not have any physical activities available except a swimming pool.

I was here on my honeymoon. One of the most picturesque place I have been to. You cannot click enough.. the stay was pleasant.. the food was a bit overpriced. I liked the concept of staying on an island. Overall it is recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
