The location is excellent with amazing views of the valley and strawberry farms. This is a place away from all the tourist hustle bustle. It lies between Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar.
The hotel is very simple and nice.The rooms have huge windows, we could all sit in the room itself and see the sun rise. Amazing experience. The dining area is very simple but serves good food. The food is served pipping hot and the chef makes dishes as per your liking and taste. There is table tennis and carom in the dinning area. It was fun to play by the time the food was being cooked and made ready. We especially liked the huge and simple music system in the dinning area. We could do campfire at night and there is a small court where you could even play badminton. Some part of the hotel is still under construction. The uphill road was a little scary for its not yet made of tar.
I totally love the place and would recommend this to everybody who wants to enjoy nature and stay in a quiet peaceful environment :)
