i stayed with my wife and daughter for 2 nights from 22nd Jan 2021. Our room was premium room located in the first floor. this room is a little more spacious compared to the normal rooms. there is not much of a view from the room as it is forest cover / trees all round. you should not open the windows as the chances of monkeys coming inside is certain. there is no air conditioning which is a big let down. due to this there could be a few musquitos in the room and you may have to use the musquito repellent provided in the room. being January weather is nice and you don’t feel the absence of AC but during summer months the ceiling fan provided may not be able to provide justice. covid protocol is followed and is a good sign. i had done the booking directly with them and they were really helpful. service was really good and special mention about sachin who has taken extra initiative and looked after us. we went for a half day trek and had to leave at 7.00 am and our breakfast was packed and ready at the reception before the scheduled time. thank you. we had a pleasant stay and will stay again.

Very helpful staff and lovely room/suite. Food good, but as the hotel was quiet with not many guests, it was a la carte only although when busier there is a buffet menu available. Very near to the boats for a sail in the national park and situated in a beautifully scenic area.
