3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Everything was excellent within the hotel area - beautiful green surroundings, quiet individual cottage-style accommodation, fine restaurant, big swimming pool...

The rooms were well appointed... More

The reviews about the resort were mostly encouraging and we decided to avail the 2 Nights & 3 Days Holiday Package offered by the Management, which included all meals,guided visit to the 50-55 acre property, an Ayurvedic body massage...

Except for the property, the hotel is a very bad experience and a waste of money. From the 1st moment, it screams BAD MANAGERS. This is what we experienced - 1. The girl who came to welcome us, came without the diya lit. Later on we saw her do the same thing for another guest. They didn't care to light... More

We stayed in the Tree House as well as the Jacuzzi Villa. Both were impeccably maintained with the perfect blend of rustic, artsy and luxurious interiors.... More
