1>Except the room and deserted dining space this 'resort' absolutely has nothing else.
2>The bad access lasts for almost 10-15 minutes which is too much. The road is so narrow that if a big vehicle comes in front of you then the back-up/let-go dance between the 2 opposing vehicles can take forever and waste a lot of your time. One more problem with the bad access road is that, there is no way you can get out or get into the resort once it is dark, which is as early as 6:30 in winter. This means that you lose a good 2-3 hours of sight seeing hours in a day. God forbid if there is an emergency at night, you are stuck in the place till sun-up. The road is so bad it can damage your car.
3>Surprisingly there are no south Indian items on the menu. Except for soup the rest of food on the menu is quite average.
4> The room size is quite small. Okay for honeymooners, not okay for family.
5>The extra bed has no space to be put in. You will have to move out the couple of chairs in the room to make space for the bed. It makes you claustrophobic.
