Well, there just aren't enough wonderful adjectives to give a review of this hotel to do it justice. First of all, the hostess, Pirkko, is a jewel. Very friendly and accommodating. The pool villa is stunning and a private pool is an experience not to be missed. This hotel was included in our luxury tour of southern India and was by far the most luxurious of our six hotels. The chef prepared meals that were so flavorful that we ate a lot more than we meant to! The ambience at the plantation house is very relaxing and a welcome respite. The fact that they do not serve alcohol was not an issue as we were able to use the wine we brought with us. Definitely worth every penny. Thank you, Pirkko, for a wonderful experience.
