Beautiful location with breathtaking view all around. The valley makes sunrise special. Food is decent, although a bit expensive. Rooms are neat and well built. Although the view from the room is great, you also have the option to drag a chair to the terrace and just stare at the clear blue skies. That itself is a luxury if you...

The Order to Serve Menu in Breakfast was never prompt enough...

My wife had an Ayurveda massage at the spa and liked it very much (the price was very reasonable). Breakfast was ok. Rest...

We stayed at the hotel for two days last week and the entire experience was great. Special mention of the service and attentiveness of Ms Susheela - exceeded expectation. Some folks may have an issue that its about 6 km from the city but that adds to its charm - with a valley view and calmness of the surroundings. The...
