We went there for our first anniversary and what a blunder that was. The only good thing about the place is that the so called resort is situated at a beautiful location...besides river tunga. And that is it. Before you feel happy about the location your misery starts. There is no proper welcoming or directions given to even reach the... More

We visited Vihangama Holiday Retreat over the weekend. The location is awesome. It’s on the river banks of Tunga. We opted for Standard Rooms which lacked privacy. After staying there for a day we shifted to the Riverside villa/cottages. The riverside villa/cottages are astonishing. These Cottages are river facing cottages with a brilliant view. All the rooms and cottages are... More
