I was just there in July , in the middle of the rains and sun, but was great sitting by the mango tree and enjoying the lovely spread of food. the property gives a colonial feeling, imposing and yet cozy. Rooms are grand and perfect reflection of the French Heritage named after Le Dupliex. A must visit!
