This place was certainly the highlight of our vacation. It was everything that we wanted it to be. Anoop and his staff greeted us and instantly made us feel welcome. He showed us to our room which was beautiful. It was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was the cleanest that we have seen on our entire trip. The bed was soft and comfortable.
After a relaxing day enjoying the views, Anoop took us on a very long hike through the local area. I think he overestimated my personal physique and assumed that I could hike up the side of a rock face!!! The views and experience was certainly well worth the work, however. We were treated to a wonderful lunch which was far too large for us to finish.
There was a constant supply of complimentary tea, snacks and water. The dinner meals were also excellent and romantic. Even when my wife fell ill (due to unrelated circumstances) the staff did everything in their power to help us feel comfortable.
During our stay, there were wild elephants in the area. We didn't get a chance to see them but apparently it was for the best. They are reportedly quite dangerous! Watch out!
We would not hesitate to recommend this place to others and would certainly come back again.
