Beautiful carvings, best hospitality and great room to stay. Overall a very different experience for living on water and location is also fantastic. Meals are tasty although just veg. I would recommend this place for stay in summers.

Nice houseboat with an ethnic look and did review other traveler experience, which is same even today. Bad salty food. Room seemed large, look elegant in style but nothing which one could fancy about here. One should not have too much expectations here.
