This is an amazing property with 26 acres of landscaped goodness. Everything from checkin to checkout is handled smoothly. The rooms are large and spacious with good view of the backwaters and the gardens. The buffet breakfast is enough to fuel you for the day full of activities like Kayaking, Archery, Paintball etc.
