This plantation is home away from home.
We had a wonderful stay at the bungalow. It was an unforgettable experience. The Location, Weather, Ambiance, Preservation and Heritage reminiscences, everything is unique at this plantation. I must say, this is one of it's kind. Fascinating view made us feel like we are in heaven. The rooms are very well maintained.
I felt the authentic plantation experience here. It was simply superb !
I must admit that all the staff are Commendable. They have a very good sense of hospitality.
I have to make a special mention about the senior butler Mr. Natesh. I am amazed to know that he is serving this bungalow since his 13th year. He grown in this bungalow while his parents are serving the British. Mr. Natesh is a very humble gentleman who always ahead of our needs. He reaches us much before anyone can to enquire about our needs. He servers us a great coffee all the time.
