we exchanged via interval international into this resort from 12-19july 2013 and i need to say that while the service is excellent and the complimentary fruit, biscuits and choclate are a nice touch, i would not stay at this hotel again and this is why:
it is overrun by corporate event, which are very noisy and have parties until very late. we recorded 80 decibel in the room on wednesday after a long day out. but more importantly, this resort is in the middle of absolutely nowhere and is at best a corporate retreat, rather than a gateway to experience india. while you can hire a driver for the day at 2500rupee (tourist rate) for 80km and 8 hours, you will really need to do your homework and plan ahead to get the best out of this service. but more importantly, is the fact that there is no atmosphere in the evening, no markets to expore, no options but to eat on site (the italian and chinese offer best value, cafe solitaire is overpriced), leaving you feel isolated. there is also no convenience store on site, despite the interval exchange cert advise. if you are staying for the day, breakfast will set you back 651 rupee pppd and lunch and dinner both at 1248 rupee pppd. this will quickly mount up and is best avoided. be purchased some cereal and milk, fruitjuice on a day out and stocked the fridge with soft drinks bought in town and just ate dinner at one of the franchises on site. however, on 3 days we were not able to access the italian restaurant because of corporate event and had no options at all. this was extremely disppointing. i would not recommend this hotel, as the location is simply too isolated.
