Never written a review on tripadvisor before , but just had to for this place ! Everything about it is just magic , and we loved every minute of our 2 days stay, and wished we were staying for longer . The peace and serenity was amazing, as was the view from our pool villa [that we were upgraded to - thank you so much !] I took about a million photos !
The room and terrace were wonderful , we slept with the curtains open so we could wake to the view .....the food from the fantastic chef was delicious , and Pirkko , and her assistant Binitha ,were so friendly and helpful , and great company.
The lack of alcohol license was not a problem at all - we had been advised in advance and just took supplies with us - and sitting out on our terrace with a cold beer looking at the view was heaven ! The remoteness was what made it so peaceful , and it was very easy to get to the village [with a driver ] for a trip to the National park and cheap massages etc .
We would really urge anybody who likes peace and quiet , great rooms and views , delicious food , and fantastic friendly staff to stay in this heavenly place .
Thank you SO much !
ps Hope you had a great time in Rajasthan, Pirkko and John !
