The resort gives a peaceful feeling as soon as you enter. Even though its very close to the Main Street the resort gives a very good feeling. We stayed there for one night and had all the three meals. For Lunch we tried the fish meal which was very good. Dinner buffet was decent,Slightly disappointed with the fact that the live counter was serving cold kebabs. Breakfast was a huge disappointment.Nothing tasted good. Even the idli was chewy. We definitely expected a good breakfast however it was definitely below the expectations. Apart from breakfast it was all good.Room were good with bug bathroom. Beds were comfortable.

We visited this hotel for 2 nights and every part of the stay was to perfection. The room, ambience, and lovely food. The property is clean and well maintained, the pool was very clean and free of insects, and the food was very authentic and tasty. They also took care of my small daughter's food needs well. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable stay amidst nature for us. Thanks to the entire staff who made it perfect for us.

Lovely spacious rooms which were clean and very comfortable and lovely views of the gardens outside the balcony with interesting and rare species of monkeys to watch in the mornings. The food was very good and the service excellent. Also around the area are so many lovely nature reserves to go to and observe the local flora and fauna. It is well worth staying there.

Room Tip: One just has to be careful to close the balcony doors when out of the room because of the Macaques.
