A bit disappointing experience in exotica. Rooms are not clean. Bathroom built in such a way that Toilet gets drenched while having a shower. Spiders sprawling in the room!!! They need to work a lot on service also. Food and tea were served cold. Staying in Exotica was like a compromise. Thanks to Vikram Ji for trying to make us... More

The staff arranges for bonfires for you putting a cherry on... More
