The structure is constructed with a lot of passion and significant work has gone into the detailing. The resort has got only 8 cottages including 2 machans. This is an... More

Visited with my friends in Nov 2014. Had a great experience. The rooms were marvelous. Decided to extend one more day just because of the mesmerizing property. The owner of the property is a very generous man. Staff members were very helpful too. Look no further, this is the place to stay in this area.
