Place is wonderful. Rooms are good. Riverside Villas are superb. But all said and done, the host is absolutely worthless to mention. Highly commercial & money making attitude. No proper guidance and non-welcoming nature. Everything you touch has money involved (including one emergency phone call which costs 20/-) . Please avoid if you are looking at a peaceful holiday and... More

Good place to stay. On the banks of Tunga river. The river side villas might be a little over priced. And the river is murky and turbulent during monsoon. And is a good place to stay when visiting Agumbe. The people who run the place a friendly. No coverage for any mobile services except BSNL.

One of the most wonderful places to visit. Leave your city life attitude and enjoy tranquillity. Food was very good, and dont expect to have a 10 course meal like any restaurant...The rooms were super clean and are places very much apart for privacy...Enjoyed it a lot!!

The resort in as one of the finest greenery with river running very closely. The rooms are good though there are too many insects also. The food is good, the reservation is tricky & the management is not very accommodative to changes. Good food also.

Silence, greenary, music of exotic birds and tunga river!Could not ask for more! 2)Next the maintenence of the rooms. Spic-and-span. Very well kept. Drawbacks 1)Noone to receive the guests. We were clueless about the location of the villa, activities that could be... More

Its a buffet. The resort is not an out of the world experience because it had few indoor games and Badminton court. we... More

Visited this place during the long weekend. Located in a plantation, calm and serene environment. Though the initial impression was good, it did not last long. Cottage was too small even for 2 people. Food is too expensive and substandard (not included with the accommodation). The manager instead of welcoming us reminded us about the pending payment and conditions as... More
