When we planned for a holiday this summer all it came to my mind was a peaceful and calm place where we can stay indoors without much of traveling and sight seeing. Finally I booked this place based on few recommendations from my friends and really thank them for suggesting this place. My family - wife and two kids were there from 16th to 18th of May 2013 and we will never forget the incredible experience of staying in a palace. The property is located on acres of forest, meadows and gardens which makes it an ideal place to go for long walks and I really enjoyed doing that. The amenities in the room were remarkable. However the food was not great. There were few choices for people who prefer Indian food. Overall we had a great experience and would love to visit again. Mr. Magesh, the executive deserves a special mention for taking care during our stay
