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

Stayed here from 15th to 17th August 2014.Went with a lot of apprehensions based on some reviews. To my surprise this place is a truly silent resort meant for relaxation.

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
