Taking a taxi in the black of the night up a narrow pot hole ridden lane you could be forgiven for thinking you are in the wrong place and the taxi driver is having you over. Stay with it for another 10 minutes and an oasis opens in front of your eyes......
Should we say more or leave the rest as a surprise?
Walking in to the hotel in a slightly dumb founded fashion the vista that opened up was of a stunning hotel with a magnificent pool taking centre stage in the superb architecture of the rooms surrounding the pool and dinning area. Full of interesting curiosities,local and from further afield, the rooms looked sumptuous without being pretentious.
We were shown to our table and immediately introduced to the Aneel the hotel owner and chef. We asked him to provide us with a feast for four - wow we certainly got that. Lots of interesting dishes that we would not have ordered but really enjoyed. Rounded off with a superb chocolate delight made for one of the best meals we had in India and certainly putting Indian cuisine in the higher echelons of cookery.
Strongly advise a visit but don't tell too many people - we may have a problem getting a table in future
