The hospitality and the natural calmness moved us. The cottages, the garden, swimming pool, and the natural environment can definitely drag people more than once. More than that, it is a wonderful place for kids, where the garden is left natural with the flora and fauna intact.

The gate of the resort is a teaser. When you reach the resort gate, you don't know what to expect. The gates are small and seem to be small and packed. One would wonder what kind of a resort it will be. When the gates were opened and we drove the car inside, the picture was different. This is a... More

This is a good resort saying what they have and having what they say. The best part is there are no false promises. It is quite comfortable stay and the facilities are limited but with the money. The main attraction is the swimming pool. Though it is not gigantic, it is reasonably well maintained and good recreation especially with family.... More

Excellent hospitality and service quality makes this resort unique...we were over 20 people and none had any issue, estate manage Mr Gowda ensured that everything goes well and he did manage that quite well..of course value-for-money is the key differentiator among other such properties..
