An outstanding location,superb oversized rooms and friendly staff all helped in making our holiday memorable.. The location is slightly offbeat, but the peace and sense of isolation is amazing. The slight negative could be that... More

Very strategically located along the lake, beautiful rooms, excellent service & lovely interiors. This is by far the best place I have ever been to. Something worth a 7 star rating. The way they have added the local Khasi touch to each and every corner of this huge property is something worth appreciating. Piping hot water, Spic and span all... More
