First, the good stuff:
Scenic location between low lying hills which were lush green when we visited in the monsoons.
The staff generally had a great attitude and were very helpful.
The rooms were decent with excellent bathrooms....great tub.
Food is very average. Nothing wrong but you cannot get excited about a meal.
They claim they have a spa but if you want a treatment, you need to book at least 4 hrs in advance and they get a therapist from another resort. If they don't have a room free then even this is not possible as they use an empty room for a treatment..no dedicated spa area. The hotel was full when we visited and the lack of a spa was a big disappointment for us.
There's nothing to do at the place. Given the seclusion of the place a few activities would be nice - putting, ping pong table, volleyball....anything! They have a few mountain bikes but very bad bikes and poorly maintained. Can't really drive them for more than a few minutes.
And finally, the approach road is awful. If you have an SUV make sure you bring it. Genuine off-road driving needed to get here.
