Went to the resort for 3 days from 30 December 2014 to 2 January 2015. I was quite excited by the photos and was really looking forward to ringing in the new year away from the mad crowd and noisy cities. Unfortunately that couldn't be done as another group of about 10 people checked in who were noisy and intrusive beyond belief. They had the audacity to come to our room and ask us if they could use our washrooms!!! That when they themselves were checked in and were given the cottages. To my surprise, the staff allowed them to have a free run of the place as if we guys weren't guests at all or did not exist! The supervisor of the resort Bhupender, was a harried man, to say the least. The poor guys was trying to keep the place functioning smoothly but the chef there, Suresh, was the one who ensured our stay there was horrendous! On the first 2 days of our stay, we were given the same food for lunch and dinner. And I don't mean similar kind of food, I mean the SAME food. On asking the so called chef why we were being given the same daal for 3 meals in a row, he conveniently placed the blame on the owner of the property saying he has been asked to prepare daal which grows there on the farm, all meals and all days!! Irrespective of what the guests say!! Well I didn't buy his excuse whether it was the truth or not. We asked Bhupender to get us some eggs and sodas when he went to the market, which he did and handed them to the Chef to keep in the fridge. When we sat down for drinks in our room, lo and behold, the sodas were gone and so were a couple of eggs, about which the chef had no idea as to who took them, from the fridge in HIS kitchen!!
Didn't manage to get in touch with the owner after checking out even though we had met him the day we checked in, as he was not in town on 2 January. If you are reading this Vinod Ji, the chef of yours is no good at managing the affairs. All he does all day is boss around the poor cleaning guy, Ram Kumar and the supervisor Bhupender.
The property has so much potential which is going to waste because of poor day to day management and one bad fish which is polluting the pond.
