I give it one point simply for the roof over my head. Positive comments: Very peaceful villa, staff overall were great...

We spent 4 days here. The rooms were good, with a veranda, and a very large bathroom. It is rather a long way out but we expected to have good river frontage, which unfortunately we did not. The photos on the net bare no resemblance to reality, in fact the whole place looks rather tired. The food was well cooked,...

It was really hard to find assistance from the staff. Even finding water was really inconvenient. They offer water at a price of Rs.100 per bottle and the most disgusting experience was that we had a hard time getting a person into contact so as to ask for that bottle of water even. Then I called the person whose contact...

Clean, confortable and spacious rooms. The staff are really friendly, helpful and professional and the young man who served us breakfast was always smiling and very professional too. We went on a river safari where we saw water monitors, crocodiles, chameleons, kingfishers and snakes with a really good guide. I definately recommend mangrove villa!
