We stayed in the deluxe suites at this retreat after a vacation in Ooty. Far from the maddening crowds of Ooty this place was a bliss in solitude. You can't ask for a better location and service. Pros - dream location, total professionalism, very clean, small but well manicured lawns and gardens, a bee hive (box) adds to the cuiosity of kids, suite 102 is quite comfortable for 2+2 family, suite 101 is slightly smaller but gr8 view. Cons - At night constant knocking(hammering at times) on the ceiling by either squirrels or birds. Well may b deliberately designed for an eco feel but definitely did'nt like that lullaby. A special note of thanks to Mr Zoheb for his professional approach. He made sure that we got the complete refund for one room we cancelled. Thanks to Peter for his gr8 service and to Asif for his ever helpful nature. I must admit that one will not feel like going for site seeing from this place and this is no exaggeration. This place is actually much more beautiful than what you see in the pictures.
