I usually travel on business. This was one of the rare instances when a dear friend in Assam insisted that I come over on a leisure trip with my family - and I did! While we didn't actually stay in this property (we stayed at our friend's house in nearby Tezpur), we visited the Hotel on our tour of Kaziranga, the natural abode of the one-horned rhino.
My friend said that it was worthwhile and the food was great. He was right on both counts. I have enough experience with hotels to know things at a glance. We took a tour of the beautiful hotel premises, went to one or two units across paths lined with flowers, peeked inside rooms and generally had a whale of a time. The responsive staff indulged in our whim of looking at rooms and unit clusters. So, I guess the service must be pretty good. Rooms looked clean too. A look at the tariff card showed that the resort was really good value for money.
Since we didn't stay overnight, I reserved my ratings for Sleep Quality & Children's Activities. The facets I have given my ratings on were the aspects I have experienced during our tour of the premises & interaction with housekeeping & restaurant staff.
About the restaurant - great Assamese dishes, wonderful presentation & responsive staff. My only issue was that a traditional dining platform in the middle of the restaurant (see attached photos) had quite a layer of dust. Unused areas in the restaurant seemed to have dust. This is the reason why I deducted a rating star for cleanliness.
