Nice and calm place surrounded by mountains and natural environment. Ideal place for a family or couple who look for a quiet or a romantic outing. Nice restaurant with good food of your choice and a pool which is clean.

Located within an abandoned Tea garden, the Hotel offers a unique experience of what really seclusion is. The silence is intriguing and only the chirps of birds and occasional noise of squirrels make the stay a heavenly experience. The real glamour of the hotel can be experienced during a rain when the entire surrounding is covered with a misty fabric... More

Surrounded by the untouched natural environment, this is an ideal place for a quiet and peaceful stay or a romantic outing. A little bit far from the city but it's worth the visit. A vast surrounding which is green.. feels like you're in the middle of a forest! The hotel is built with minimum damage to the environment. Staff is... More

Of course there are many more ways this hotel could improve but it had been a really good stay. It was the day after our wedding and we were both really tired and it was a very much relaxing stay quite opposite to what we had to experience in hunas falls the very same evening. It made me more grateful... More

The cottages where we stayed were badly maintained with old and dirty bathroom tiles. The rooms had no heating facility, no provision of basic items like laundry bag, toothpaste, slippers etc. No mats were provided outside the cottage and outside the bathroom hence bringing in the slush and mud from outside into the rooms. The cupboard they had in the... More

It's an excellent place for bird-watchers, nature-photographers and highly recommended for honeymooners too. Stayed for 02nights at the VILLA which was spacious & beautiful!!! Very well maintained.

We stayed for couple of nights in the villa which is quite spacious and with great view of the forest vegetation and hills. The staff were friendly and helpful. The buffet is alright but not great. It's a great place to relax since it's away from the city and you can listen in to the sounds of nature anytime.
