This remote property only has a few rooms, all of which are excellent. We were traveling with our two small children and although we got the smallest room, we were still accommodated with mattresses for the kids. The food was great. The boat tours were fun. High tea on the porch while watching the elephants and boars and samba deer... More

Visited this absolutely calm abode nicely maintained in pristine nature. Courteous staff very supportive and cooperative provide nice masala chai in the little cold cosy ambience. Nicely cooked vegetarian food with enough variety of north and south made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Truly an unimaginable and unbelievable place which is mesmerising and stunningly beautiful.

We ordered muglai dishes. Food was tasty and healthy as per our North Indian taste. The toilets are clean and well maintained. You will encounter... More
