Room was average looking at the rates they charge. Food was also average :). Go for a la carte. But customer service is good. And views from the hotel is very good and at night it looks great to see the mountains with lights. Good point is they provide complimentary ride to the lake and back. We stayed here for... More

After lot of research we finally booked this hotel through Ibibo (got 25% off) for 3 nights. We were 5 couples (with kids) and this was a perfect place for a peaceful vacation. Deluxe rooms are pretty spacious, in fact bigger than superior room (which has a better interior). Food quality was decent but very limited variety, needs improvement on... More
