Property is good, resort manager is also very pro active but poor seen starts when you stay second day, house keeping will withdraw amenities in room and even rooms will not be refreshed in a right manner. Food is good is you take Indian not much choice if you go for continental it is horrible.

One of the best resort in india to explore and we mesmerised with our decision to stay in this resort. One of the best location in north east to explore and the architecture and ambience of resort is to give ice on cake feeling. However bit expensive as per standards but must to stay once.
