If you want to be far from crowds, this is a place to stay, a heritage home indeed, due care is given by the management to ensure pristine clean rooms and a meditative silence with early morning chants and instructions on due care of this beautifully restored house, just two minutes walk from the Promenade.
Remember this is a home that has been restored with a lot of care, attention to detail and at great cost, it provides you a bed, wholesome breakfast, quiet relaxation. In our case of 8 ladies who could not speak too softly, we still had the option of late evening rooftop parties, kindly accommodated by the management, who understood our need to unwind.
Remember to carry your home footwear (go for a soft variety to avoid scuffing floors) in case you do not find the acupressure type they provide uncomfortable.
