We stayed a Shiluvari for 3nights in May, using it as a base to explore the area and it was just what we wanted. The staff are just so helpful and willing, the location is fantastic right by the lake. There is not a great choice of food, but we had no complaints and everything we had was really delicious. Our room was under trees which made it a bit dark, but it is presumably well shaded in summer.
So, don't expect luxury, but enjoy the welcome and the hospitality of the wonderful people who are there to look after you.
