A peaceful serene experience that helps you to find inner peace along with the charms of living in an excellent property that fits in well with nature at its purest form. Highly advisable for people who want to experience the raw beauty of the Paravati valley.

If you are planning a holiday and wondering where you would be treated like royals, look no further. This place is luxurious, really well placed and service is excellent. The Machan room is grand and views are awesome. Must go for newly weds.
