Murtaza & Avanti's luxuruious holiday resort has an enchantingly homely feel. We were welcomed & spoilt by courteous staff, & pampered with meals of our choice.
We savoured high tea in the courtyard garden with a pair of guinea fowl for company.
And there were romantic candlelit dinners on the terrace under the laden avocado tree, with fireflies to add more light!
The plunge pool was a delight, located stunningly on the terraced garden overlooking the Ulapana stream down below, with stunning views of the mountain slope rising steeply on the other side.
For exercise, the terraced steps leading down to the entrance & a walk along the river was just right.
My favourite place for an afternoon nap was the 'Khaat" or swing bed suspended from the ceiling in the living room, & the therapeutic sound of the rushing waters from the stream to lull me to sleep.
Lucien, the manager is a wealth of information about the estate that Weir house is on, as well as any topic one cares to discuss - from worldly affairs to cricket!
Weir House is undoubtedly my 'slice of heaven'.More
