What was supposed to be a surprise element in the holiday with my wife turned out to be our most unpleasant experience ever. Whilst we had to deal with a host of issues. (explained below), the trigger point... More

New management trying to get the place upto speed. Food and room service needs significant improvement. Awesome view of the lake. Very helpful and friendly staff. Don't miss the waterfall before the retreat.

We stayed as a family of 4 (2+2). The hotel is some what far from the Bansura dam & not that easy to find. The last 1 km is a dirt road followed by a little climb. The USP of the hotel is great views facing the Bansura reservoir from a high elevation. The hotel staff were also very friendly... More

The rooms where comfortable with a private balcony over looking the dam. Rooms are well maintained. Food served at restaurant was average and overpriced. The resort staff were courteous. Expect...
