Room by the pool , the property is beautifully located in a plateau/ hill top. The swimming pool and the spa and the open spaces are the main attraction. The rooms need a fresh coat of paint. We usually visit in the monsoon and the staff are courteous and friendly. The food quality seems to have deteriorated.
