Great location, very clean and decently spacious rooms and extremely sweet and cooperative staff. But the buggest draw is their food ...its worth the stay alone. Rate it very highly. Full marks !

  • This restaurant is at Villa Shanti
The restaurant of VILLA SHANTI splits into two parts, one opens on the patio with the vertical garden, and the other air conditioned located in the old building.We decided to focus on quality, freshness and seasonal products. We try to find them among small local vendors, favouring those who respect organic farming.Timings : 12:00 - 23:00 hrs (Last Order at 22:30 hrs)The cafe bar, situated opposite the patio and vertical garden offers snacks from Indian streets & sandwiches.You may also choose to have your meals, enjoy a cocktail made up from fresh fruit juices, listen to music, or simply read a book from our library. Timings : 10:00 - 23:00 hrs (Last Order at 22:30 hrs. Pre booking highly recommanded especially during week end or public holidays
