Visited in April 2012, This was a small lake resort with limited facilities and totally managed by women. It has beautiful backwaters lake view and one could spend any amount of times besides the lake. We did a boat tour arranged by the resort and boat had come till the resort which was quite convenient.

We were a group of 7 members..taken one bedroom cottage and a bedroom with one extra bed. Nice service and great ambience. Perfect choice for family and friends We had a great time with at least an hour spending in the lake for bath. Being a shutterbug i was able roam around the nearby paddyfields by their directions

A peaceful spot right on the lake. The chalets are simple and comfortable. Exceptionally friendly staff. Delicious food. This was our first hotel in India and we couldn't have been better looked after.
