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..
