This place is stunning - the grounds, the main hotel, the bungalows, the service, the food. I cant say enough about how beautiful this place is. The price is a bit higher than the rest but totally offers great value. Every amenity is offered and the staff are friendly and attentive. I could have stayed here a whole week.
The views of tea plantations and rolling hills are endless. The bungalows put the forest right in your backyard/balcony. They are immaculate and decorated beautifully. Your greeted with a bottle of wine in your room with yummy snacks. The bathrooms have fabulous showers, a tub, double sinks, private toilets, towel warmers. Everything is all inclusive including house alcohol
Just make sure you inquire/book your activities and timings beforehand or you may miss the opportunity since afternoon transportation to the forest is not so reliable/predictable.
