To begin with I have to state that the owners, Tammy and Amit are close friends. This review is un-solocited and must be taken in that light.

This place is great! The villa and garden are so beautiful and it is amazing how the owners have managed to set up such an incredibly comfortable place in such a remote location. Every detail has been carefully thought through, from interior decorations to pillows and duvets (the most comfortable I've ever encountered in India!). The cleanliness is perfect and...
