I was very happy with the place. We booked a luxury villa with private pool and I think we were given the one with the best view of the lake. Loved the outdoor shower and the private pool with jacuzzi...had a good ayurvedic massage..enjoyed riding the cycle around the property..went on all types of boat rides on the lake and even stopped by at an uninhabited island in the middle of the lake. Friendly people, Food was excellent and liked the tea and bhaji shop near the lake. Got a scare when we heard thudding sounds on the roof on just one night..but the reception immediately sent someone to check it out and it turned out to be some animal..could have been a squirrel or a monkey..but never saw any animal on the property when we were outside. A very relaxing and peaceful time spent with husband after hectic wedding preparations. I couldnt have asked for better!
