Amazing hospitality, great ambience, overall outstanding. Staffs are very helpful especially Siva. Special thanks for each and every one for making my stay memorable.

We stayed for two nights with my children. I am really astonished by the ever smiling faces of the staff. They never said no to anything. Parthiban, the chef was always ready to please us. Shiva, Raj, Samuel and Xavier were very helpful. The only downside if this place is the continuous barking of the dogs from the neighborhood.

Visited for the second time. Excellent South Indian food, very friendly staff, well maintained Swiss tent (honeymoon suite). Unlike the last time it was pleasant weather during the entire stay. Improvements from the last visit are noteworthy. An ideal place for couples wishing to spend time together.
