Was a quick break just for wife and me. The idea of allowing nature to be the lord is beautifully executed here. The flowers, trees, forest, grass, bird nests in the grass, hundreds of butterflies, bees, other forms of life...it was a completely different experience. The bathrooms are great, solar powered geysers work. The food was overall just about average....

Nothing articificial here - from the food to the people to the scenery. Everything is simple, down-home and earthy. And very very beautiful. The hosts are truly warm hosts (- not just great "staff" and "management" ). The overall experience leaves most people coming back over and over again.

The cottages were well placed and the property...

For us, It's like distant home outside the hectic city life. Location felt like in the womb of nature, truelly. Estate is surrounded with forest and cottage composed of all natural items. Noise free stay and peaceful ambience. A day out in forest track is like cheery on top which ended up near popular temple. Hospitality team on their toes...

Sonapani is a place to explore oneself and nature around you. This was our second visit after 10 years. It felt like seeing a kid all grown up. The 12 cottages are still there but they are now surrounded by trees where earlier their were saplings/plants. The cottages have modern bathrooms (a big plus). Ashish and Deepa our hosts are...
