The hotel is away from the humdrum of the city, giving you a peaceful setting to enjoy your holidays. The rooms are well-maintained and come with modern facilities. Food served at the restaurant was good, but the service was a bit slow. They also have boating facilities in the resort. Overall, the resort is a good option if you want... More
