Just got back from The Rappa and boy, we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We were 3 families along with 2 naughty brats who decided to visit the rappa for a 1 day vacation, we reached there on the 12th of November by 10AM. We were ably guided by CB(rockstar) and were accorded a grand welcome by CB along with his team of the most adorable dogs in the world(Milo, Tootsie, Tingu & a couple of other cutie pies and Mr Turkey, guinea fowls and the entire Geese family :) )
One look at the place and you are bound to be mesmerized with the beautiful scenic location of the resort and the river right in front of your cottages, please do not expect anything fancy, this is a no-frills place, but you cannot help but fall in love with nature all over again. Prices are very reasonable considering the fact that you get breakfast, 2 meals, coffee and snacks, water sports,archery, ropeclimbing etc. Worth every penny that you spend.
The kayaking was the best part of the trip for all of us, you will not be allowed to enter the waters without your life jackets(MANDATORY), Their staff (Nagesh,Ashok and Pradeep) are really helpful and courteous and will spare no efforts in making your stay there a pleasant experience. The food was awesome(veg & non-veg), homely food and left us licking our fingers. The dining room also doubles up as a music and dance floor and you are welcome to party as long as you want( as long as you don't cross the accepted limits of decency).
CB was the perfect host, ever gracious and accommodating all our requests, he will do everything possible to help you have a great time at the rappa. He made us feel at home. we were supposed to leave on the 13th of November, but we were so floored by the place that we decided to extend our stay by another day.
Loved every minute of our stay there, HIGHLY RECOMMEND for all who wanna have a great and relaxing time away from all our busy hectic boring city lives that we lead. We are already planning our next trip here very soon :)
