The resort is located on the crown of a hill, about 2 hours' drive from Rishikesh. Check in was a painless process since we were pre-booked from New Delhi, and we got a corner room with a great view. All meals are included in the package, and so are the use of the swimming pool (not used since the temperature ranged from 20*C in the day to 8*C at night).
The rooms are fairly clean, though maintenance leaves some more to be desired (cracked washbasin for one, jamming lock of main door for another - though the lock issue was taken care of promptly by them).
The buffet meal service was good, though not five-star. Enough variety to satisfy both vegetarians and non-vegetarians, and the menu wasn't repeated for the 3 days we were there. Crockery and cutlery are clean, but with all guests trying to eat at the same time, the dining space can become somewhat inadequate.
This is the place if one wants to put up one's feet and just relax. Nothing to do, no sightseeing, no shopping, mobile connection works erratically, and the view across the valley is awesome. The gardens are well maintained, the rabbits and geese on the property were interesting for the kids to play with. The glass house at one end is lovely to sit in and soak up the sun (or watch the rain all around as we did), while looking out over the valley below. There's also a spa and gym on the property which we did not get around to using despite our best resolutions.
